FIELD TRIP:

 Go to the zoo and visit the bats.  If you are lucky enough to live near a zoo with a bat house then go on a family field trip to visit them.  If you live in an area that has bats in the wild you may just need to go for a walk.  We saw lots of bats when visiting family in Australia just by walking in the botanical gardens.
