We talked about different animals you can find in the wild, and identified pictures of some of the animals.
The craft we did was a wildlife scene. Materials needed: Blue construction paper (for the sky), green and/or brown construction paper (for ground), clipart images of different wild animals, glue, scissors, and crayons.
I had both green and brown paper out for the children to use. It was fun too se how creative they all got. Some cut the top of the green paper in strips about 1/4 of the way down the paper to create grass, others layered the brown and green, and some made green hills behind brown dirt. You could also cut trees out of the brown and use the green to make the leaves.
