Study the Savanna

Guest Author - Alissa Moy

A savanna is defined as a rolling grassland scattered with shrubs and isolated trees. The Savanna can be found between a tropical rainforest and a desert biome. Enjoy teaching your preschooler about this fascinating environment by starting with the Savannas of East Africa. In this location the famous acacia trees are found. The Serengeti Plains of Tanzania are some of the most well known in East Africa. Begin your study by having your child create an easy African Drum.

African Savanna Drum

Items Needed:
Empty Coffee Can
Tacky Glue
Vinyl Tape
Animals from the Savanna, either stickers or foamies
Construction Paper
Colored Vinyl Tape
Scissors

Directions:
After thoroughly cleaning a coffee can and drying it completely gather your items for this fun and simple craft. Cut a piece of yellow construction paper to fit the coffee can. Next, decorate the can by using colored vinyl tape to tape the paper into and around the can. You can buy vinyl tape in various colors to match the color of the construction paper. Now you are ready to have your child decorate their drum with Savanna animal stickers, such as the elephant or zebra. You can also find foamie stickers in your local craft store.

After you have enjoyed a craft with your child, print out a free mini book on the animals of the Savanna, by Evan-Moor. This book can be read together and colored in as well. You can find the link for this mini book at the bottom of the page.

Spend some time on the web with your child learning more about the Savanna with Sheppard Software. This unique and free website offers an encompassing and interactive presentation on the animals of the Savanna.

Be sure to check out your local area zoo for a day trip to see if you and your child can spot some animals of the Savanna. Many zoos across the US and Canada have dedicated areas for these amazing creatures.
