Living in South Africa we are so fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful nature reserves with an abundance of wildlife and beautiful plants. My family are always keen for a getaway to a nearby game park, and as we live in the Eastern Cape, we have a few really good ones close by. Our favorite for a day trip is Addo Elephant National Park. We happily spend hours watching a herd of elephants frolicking at a waterhole. These enormous animals just love to play and have fun in the water on a hot day!
As a tribute to the wonder of being on safari in Africa the freebie I have for you is 'Safari Park Data'. This worksheet/activity is geared for students in Grades 2 and 3. Using the picture reference students count the animals in the safari park and complete a graph with their information. They then use the graph to assist them to answer questions about the data they gathered.
I hope your students will enjoy this activity as much as my family enjoys visiting game parks! :)
