Continents and Crocodiles

Sunday, September 17th, 2006

Use Sayre’s continent books or maps to introduce the continent of Africa.

Then introduce some African animals with the books below. 

First, survey the kids about what they know about crocodiles and think about crocodiles: Do you like crocodiles? How would you describe a crocodile? Pay attention to the adjectives they use and write a few down on a chalkboard.

Now look back at the adjectives we used for crocodiles before we read the book. Did you learn anything new about crocodiles? How would you describe them now? Let’s learn about some more African animals.

If You Should Hear a Honey Guide contains a Swahili word: Kumbe! Check the web or other books for more Swahili words to introduce to the kids. Educators might also transition to more information on the people of Africa.

Lawrenceburg, IN was one of the first places to welcome me for a school visit, many years ago. They celebrated the honey guide with projects, including a honey comb made of toilet paper rolls!
