    Answer 1/8

    Giraffes sleep more than most animals.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    False. The world’s tallest animal doesn’t sleep much compared to most animals. Giraffes only need about 30 minutes of sleep a day!  Giraffes take short naps so that they can stay on the lookout for hungry lions.



    Giraffes don’t need a lot of sleep, but you need 10 to 11 hours of sleep a night so that your body can rest, recharge, and grow. If you need to wake up at 7 a.m. to get to school, you should be in bed by 8 p.m.



    Going to bed the same time every night will help you sleep.

    Answer 2/8

    This flying mammal sleeps hanging upside down from the top of a cave.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Bats sleep during the day, so they need somewhere dark and quiet like a cave to get enough sleep. Treat your room like your own cave. Make sure it’s cool, dark, and quiet.



    Light from the hallway or even from your TV or computer can trick your brain into thinking you should be awake. To get all the sleep you need, turn off all electronics two hours before bedtime so it’s easier to relax and go to sleep.

  • slide image
    Answer 3/8

    Brown bears sleep for almost half the year.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    True. Brown bears sleep a lot. They sleep all winter when there isn’t enough food for them to eat until spring arrives. In the spring, they have lots of healthy salmon or other fish to munch on.



    You don’t need as much sleep as a bear, but not getting enough sleep can play tricks on your body. It may make you feel hungry for junk food when you really just need sleep. When you get enough sleep, you’ll have lots of energy. Try getting 10 to 11 hours of sleep every night.

    Question 4/8

    Which swimming sea creature sleeps with one eye open?

    Answer 4/8

    Which swimming sea creature sleeps with one eye open?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Dolphins can sleep with one eye open. They do that to watch out for hungry sharks. But worrying and being stressed out makes it hard for people to sleep. If you are stressed out about a tough test or a fight with a friend, talk to an adult about your feelings. Then you can feel a little better and rest.



    Don’t feel like talking? Try writing down what you are worried about in a journal before bedtime. Then you will be able to rest a little easier.

    Answer 5/8

    Honeybees are too busy to sleep.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    False. They may be busy, but bees do take short naps so they have enough energy to get through the day. And boy, do they need energy! Honey bees flap their wings nearly 200 times a second. They spend their days looking for food, building their hives, and making honey.



    You need lots of energy to buzz around school and hang out with your friends. You might think a soda or energy drink can give you extra energy, but they are not healthy. Beeee smart and get the sleep you need to make sure you have energy!

    Answer 6/8

    These reptiles like to snooze on a rock in the sun when it’s warm and burrow in a cave or in the sand when it’s too cold.

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Where a snake decides to sssssleep can depend on how hot or cold it is. Being too hot or too cold can make it hard for you to sleep, too. People sleep best in cool rooms.



    If your room feels too warm, ask your parents if you can have a fan in your room. If your feet are cold, slip on some cozy socks and curl up under your favorite blanket. When your body is the right temperature, you will rest well and be ready for tomorrow!

It takes several hours to make sure you get this type of sleep and enough rest, so get to bed early enough so that you can have sweet dreams!
