Time needed: 30 minutes
Pets are as different as the people who love them. If you hope to have a pet someday, choose the pet that’s right for you—and learn how to keep it happy and healthy. Or find out how to take the best care of a pet you already have!
Before you find out which pet is best for you, create your own Pet Bingo game card:
Now, it’s time to play Pet Bingo! Pick one animal from a box and answer the following questions. You can find information in a book, go online, or ask an animal expert.
When you find the answers to the questions above, draw an X on the box. Next, move on to other animals and draw an X on those boxes when you’re done with their questions. You’re finished with the game when you’ve completed one row up, across, or diagonally!
