Pygmy three-toed sloth
The pygmy three-toed sloth lives on a tiny Caribbean island called Escudo de Veragua.
The pygmy three-toed sloth is smaller than a regular sloth. It lives in small shrubs and trees.
In this clip we will see a pygmy three-toed sloth trying to find love. Will he find ‘the one’?
Write a story about a sloth – remember to give it a name!
Use the example below to help you:
Once upon a time, there was a silly sloth whose name was Sammy. One sunny day, he went for a swim in the sea. Unfortunately, he got lost and couldn’t find his way home! Luckily, he bumped into a friend, and they swam back to the shore together. In the end, they ate a lovely dinner made up of fruit, leaves and insects. Yummy!
Once you have finished your story, read it to a family member or friend.
Wider Curriculum idea
Draw a picture of the sloth from your story. You can use these pictures of sloths from National Geographic to help you.
