animal talk scavenger hunt photoCome to the museum dressed as your favorite animal and learn how animals talk!

Have you ever wished that you could talk with other animals?

Doctor Dolittle, the imaginary character in the Hugh Lofting book The Story of Doctor Dolittle, could do just that!

Doctor Dolittle learned animal languages and made animal friends all over the world.

Use the clues to find six of his animal friends in the museum and learn how that animal really communicates.

Then, like Doctor Dolittle, tell us what you think that animal is saying by drawing or writing on the sheet provided.

When you are finished take your sheet to The Shop at HMNH and receive a small gift!

Talk back and tag us with your answers, photos, and drawings using the hashtag #HarvardAnimalTalk.
