Zebras and Giraffes

We spent a whole week talking about zebras and giraffes, then compared the two animals using a Venn diagram. Spending a couple days earlier really helped the kiddos understand the similarities and differences between the animals. After completing the Venn diagram, each kiddo was given a paper with a zebra or giraffe. They were to draw a picture and label their animal and include 3 facts about that animal. The final day was spent making our zebras and giraffes out of construction paper.

All About Giraffes

We spent the afternoon talking about giraffes by looking through books and observing giraffes in videos. We started by watching a video of giraffes running about in Africa and interacting with other animals. We then read parts of the book titled "Giraffes" to find out information about giraffes. We found out that a giraffes tongue is 20 inches long!! We measured 20 inches on a yard stick and decided it was really long! We also found out that Giraffes live in Africa, they eat the leaves from tall trees, and they are so tall they have to spread their legs to drink from a watering hole. As a whole group we then wrote our new found information on our big chart.
