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 prairie
- Animals in the prairie images from the internet or your drawings
- Color pencils, crayons or markers for drawing
- Letter size paper for drawing the prairie 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.
Idea 1: Drawing scenery
After learning about the prairie 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 prairie scenery drawing.
