pictures of safari animals
- Talk about safaris. Explain that many different animals live in eastern and southern Africa and that people visit these areas to see the animals.
- Show the children pictures of animals typically found in Africa, such as a lion, zebra, elephant, gazelle, rhinoceros, hippopotamus, baboon, cheetah, leopard, crane, vulture, and hyena.
- Encourage the children to sort the pictures in a variety of ways. For example, the children might sort the pictures into groups of large animals and small animals, striped/spotted animals and solid-colored animals, land animals (lion), and water animals (hippo).
