2. 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.
3. 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).
