Chipmunks etc.

Can I just say this? I need to get it off my chest. My kids are doing this science fair project for school. The 1st graders are doing their projects on animals. My daughter chose a chipmunk. This being a Christian school and all, the kids are supposed to come up with a spiritual applications for their science fair. This seems to be ahhh...a bit contrived.

We're talking a chipmunk here...a chipmunk and a 6 year old.

I do not know what kind of deep meaningful spiritual epiphany they are expecting.

I have spent far too much time racking my brain for some sort of spiritual meaning in cheek pouches and chattering in small mammals.

Oh fellow cyber friends, the rebel in me SO wants to plaster some smart remark all over my daughter's display board. But, alas, I cannot, in good conscience, do it.

How about:
-the provison of God for even the smallest creatures?
- God's unique design that lets the creature do XY and Z
- Do they share food and nests or anything? Could you say they "show God's love" to eachother?
