When I was little and staying at my grandparents house, a bat got into my bedroom. Grandpa tried to catch it with his fishing net, but ended up knocking it onto the bed and thus onto me. As you can imagine, I wasn’t a fan of bats for awhile after that. But now I’m rather fond of them. It helps that they get rid of my number one enemy, the mosquito. Plus they really are fascinating creatures! Help students get to know these interesting mammals with bat-themed activities and printables.
