We named all of the different animals that we saw in the video (although I have to admit...there were a few horned creatures that I didn't know the name of, so I called them 'antelope'...ooops).
Then, we started our giraffe project. This was quite an undertaking for kinders. We had to draw the giraffe, cut it out, tear brown paper for the spots, make a moon, & cut the grass. I think they turned out very well. The lesson actually came from Patti over at Deep Space Sparkle. My teacher friend had downloaded one of Patti's units on African Themed Art Lessons and gave me a copy. Thanks Patti!

Purchasing her lesson plans is definitely worth the $$.
Here are a few of our torn-paper giraffes:
