Friday 15th September 2017 - The African Savannah
Last week we revisited the continents and oceans of the world and used globes and maps to locate Africa, zooming in on our focus area, the savannah. After looking at a range of photographs and film clips we thought about the savannah as a habitat during the dry season and this week have started to create our own version as a diorama.
This week, we began to research the animals of the savannah, starting with the giraffe. We've found out lots of interesting facts which we'll be displaying outside our classroom in the corridor very soon. Did you know that "giraffe" means fast running camel leopard?
