Animal Habitats For Kids: Grassland (Savanna)

Dry Season and Rainy Season

We were learning about the grassland habitat, but we found out the savanna and the prairie are very different, even both are grassland. We studied them separately.

What We Used

  • Books and videos about the savanna
  • Animals in the savanna images from the internet or your drawings
  • Color pencils, crayons or markers for drawing
  • Letter size paper for drawing the savanna scenery
  • Scissors for cutting out the animal images

I recommend using actual animal images, not the clip-arts, because most kids have never seen these animals except at the zoo.

Activity Ideas

Idea 1: Drawing scenery

After learning about the savanna from videos and books, draw the scenery.

Idea 2: Adding animals

Print out the small size of animal images from the internet, and cut them out. Place on the savanna scenery drawing.
