We like these videos because it shows mountains are actual homes and stomping grounds for animals. This video features a mother puma and bear and their cubs. Mother starts with m. The second video! It introduces another great “M” word…monkeys! Don’t tie the “m” and these “m” words all at once while you are watching video but when you are doing your activities go through the “m” sound and use the words “monkey,” “mom,” “mountains!”

How about printing out some little monkey or using some monkey sticker and pasting them right on the mountain M after they watch video? Perfect!
Don’t forget to pull out your map! Where is Ethiopia? (Hint: Africa)
And you can’t have a talk about mountains without talking about triangles right?

How many different types of monkeys can you name? How are they different? How are they the same? Compare and contrast!
It’s always fun to explore the less common animals, specially babies! And if you didn’t see this video…would you ever really know about the TEAM work and family values that this animal possesses? Probably not!
