## Math & Science Project

**Fact:**The three-toed sloth is the slowest moving animal on land. He isn’t lazy, just very slow. His legs and feet are shaped for a very comfortable life in trees. He is very adept at moving from branch to branch or just hanging out. He is not built to move on land. His average speed is 0.15 miles per hour.

**Directions:**Research the following animals to find their average speed. Then compare the animals speed to that of a sloth.

**Animals:**Cheetah, Lion, Elk, Coyote, Zebra, Giraffe, Cat, Elephant ,Chicken, and Garden Snail.

*Use the website under Students tab labeled: Topic 9 MP Animals Speed. It is bookmarked on my Symbaloo.*
