Animals of the African Savanna – Worksheets and Activities
I have just added an entirely new section to the World Animals Packet on Animals of the African Savanna. This includes worksheets and other activities.
This section covers about 25 different African animals. For younger kids there are tracing pages and self-correcting matching cards. There is also a notebook page about the African savanna and blank notebook pages for all of the animals. There is also a country map of Africa (not pictured) that my daughter will be working on.
Note: If you purchased the World Animals Packet or the Animal Bundle previously, be sure to check your PayPal email address for the update email (or just drop me a note and I can get that to you!).
I made this for my daughter (age 10) who loves researching/writing, so she’s pretty excited about the notebook pages, but as I said above there are pages that are suitable for younger kids as well (like the tracing pages, not pictured and the self-correcting matching cards).
My daughter is going to be studying biology and the biological relationships and how animals (or plants) interact — terms like symbiosis, commensalism, mutualism and so forth. You can find more about the biology unit here. In fact, I just added about 20 new pages to that packet as well since the kids (ED and my older two) are going over this material again. 🙂
She will be doing the two units simultaneously. We will go over the various animal relationships and she will be watching some documentaries. As she watches, we’ll discuss some of the terms/relationships that are presented in the film.
BBC documentaries: We will be using BBC Atlas of the Natural World Set: Africa, Europe, Western Hemisphere, Antarctica and Africa Eye to Eye with the Unknown (also produced by the BBC). (affiliate links) My kids absolutely loved the documentaries narrated by David Attenborough (Life, Planet Earth, Blue Planet) which we watched a few years ago when we first did the biology unit. I’m hoping these new series are a hit with the kids too. 🙂
