What is YOUR Name?

Part of Lesson Plan: Basic Animal Terminology

Activity Overview / Details

Everyone has their own name to identify them in a crowd. It describes 'who' you are as an individual. Animals have terms that describe their status and purpose. The term may relate to the reproductive purposes (intact or sexually functional) or simply the age status of an animal. Terms have also been derived to denote the process of giving birth and the grouping of animals.
