Today among the postcards from friends we also received three from family in Tucson, Arizona. From Pat D ( and family) she writes: Hi! My hubby and I live in Tucson, Arizona. This postcard shows what the desert looks like on the outskirts of the city, but there are many cacti and other desert plants in town too.
The second postcard reads: This photo shows downtown Tucson, where the city's highest buildings are. I can see these buildings from my classroom (I'm a teacher) downtown.
Postcard #3 reads: Hello again my K-1 class has been learning about dessert variable and invariables. The Javelina belongs to the class of variables called mammals. They travel through Tucson in dry washes: we see them in our yards. They are not a type of wild pig.
The Javelina, also known as the peccary, is the only pig like animal native to the Americas. The Javelina can be found from the Southwest Untied States to Argentina. Javelinas average 20 inches and weigh about 50 lbs.They have grizzled brown -black fur and live in small groups and eat roots, insects, worms, and fruit.Thank you Pat D we have learned so much and next week we will obtain some books from the library on this interesting Javelina.
