Meet Animals Shaped Like Letters
Alphabetimals is an interactive online flipbook featuring animal sounds and the pronunciations of animal names. The Alphabetimals characters can spell out any word that you would like. Just type the word in the word box, and it will appear as alphabet animals, which you can print out and use as flashcards. Also, on the Alphabetimals Facebook page, you’ll find free cutout flashcards and an alphabet poster, which you can download and print.

This year Scientific American is helping to expand the Google Science Fair honors by sponsoring a $50,000 Science in Action award for a project that addresses a social, environmental or health issue to make a practical difference in the lives of a group or community. Volunteer mentors will help foster the continued development of that winning project for a year.
