    Read about ducks, what they do, where they live, and so much more. Have fun waddling like ducks and making duck sounds. If possible, watch ducks at a pond or farm. Look at pictures of duck bodies, heads, wings, legs, and feet. What shapes do you see? Can you find the breathing holes on the duck’s bill? Look for ears on the duck. Although ducks have no external ears, they hear very well. Now it’s time to show some ducks at a pond. You can use realistic colors or any hues you like!
