Paper Animal Models

Learning about wetlands, wildlife and nature is fun! The best way is to get outside and explore but on the days that you can’t, our animal models make a fun indoors activity.

Create your own fun art project with these 3-D paper models. Nature notes appear in English and several other languages and each piece includes a different wetland creature. Creating a Wetland World provides ideas for using these models in the classroom or as an individual or family project.
