Engaging Resource on Revolutionary War.The fennec foxalso known as the desert fox, is a petite animal that's native to the Sahara desert and other parts of North Africa.
Although it's not common, sometimes these tiny foxes with oversized ears are kept as pets. Fennec foxes behave a bit like active, playful little dogs. And because they are prey animals in the wild, they can be rather skittish and startled easily.
Plus, fennec foxes are mostly nocturnal, meaning they're more active at night. It can be especially difficult to manage their high energy level during the hours when most people are sleeping. Thus, it's not easy to care for a pet fennec fox. Along with the proper diet, you have to be able to provide enough space and activities to keep your animal happy and healthy.
Although fennecs typically live in groups in the wild, they tend to be somewhat independent as pets. They might enjoy playing with their humans at times, such as an energetic game of fetch. But then there will be other times when they prefer to play alone. Fennecs are cautious by nature, and they are quick to flee if something frightens them. While most would rather choose flight over fight, they will bite if something truly angers them.
Some fennecs, especially unneutered males, will also mark their territory with urine—including the inside of your home. These animals make a variety of vocalizations to express their moods, and some can be very loud. Some fennecs will get along with other household pets, especially dogs and cats around their size.
Introduction at a young age will help them coexist more peacefully with other animals, as well as bond with their human family members. Expect to spend a lot of time and effort keeping your fennec exercised. They are quick, active, and agile animals. Fortunately many fennecs will adapt to their human's schedule, rather than remaining nocturnal.
Fennecs can be trained to walk on a leash, which helps to get some of their energy out each day. As desert animals, fennecs require temperatures of at least 68 degrees Fahrenheit. If you live in an appropriate climate, an outdoor enclosure that's as large as possible is ideal to give your fennec some exercise. Many people make their own outdoor pens out of wood and wire screening. The pen must be designed to prevent your fennec from digging under or climbing over the walls, both of which these foxes are quite good at doing.

The Global Interactive Digital Notebook Generated by enthusiastic and creative administrators and staff within Ramtown School, global notebooks have been designed as math tutorials that can be accessed via the internet.
Currently students at Ramtown have created tutorials explaining the process and solution of various mathematical concepts and skills. The skills used for the tutorials have been identified as weaknesses that need to be addressed.
This Global Interactive Digital Notebook will assist students with practice of multi-level step problem solving and higher order thinking skills as related to concepts learned in the classroom. These tutorials will allow the students to bring classroom learning home with them to practice at their level, and reinforce skills that are exposed to in the classroom.
The students will be able to view the tutorials on line as many times as needed. As this webpage is available to all that have the internet, the digital notebooks with iPods will be signed out to those students who are currently immersed in the introduced skill or may not have access to the Internet or a DVD player.
The goal is that the interactive tutorials will be similar to a classroom experience, but students can listen to the lesson over and over unlike a traditional classroom setting. Exposure will lead to increase understanding of complex math skills. This Global Interactive Digital Notebook is assisting our students in becoming 21st century learners. It is our goal to create digital notebooks for other subject areas, and hope that other schools in the district, state, and country will utilize the tutorials to help their students become competent, confident, and successful 21st century learners.Click on each to read reviews and see the previews available on on TpT.
