Knowledge and understanding of the world

Learn about savanna animals and their environment Become aware of patterns in the natural world Become aware of cause and effect through own first-hand experience

Physical development

Creative development
Join in with musical games and songs (5 little monkeys,1 elephant went out to play) Use own imagination to draw savanna animals and create savanna animal crafts out of different types of materials Create/ reproduce patterns from the natural world

Demonstrate fine motor control and improve hand-eye coordination when colouring, drawing, cutting along lines Walk and stomp like an elephant, gallop like a zebra, dance like a monkey, roar like a lion.

Circle Elephant Craft Shapes, Scissor Skills, Colors, and Counting Practice This craft can be used to teach a variety of skills. You don't have to use all the thoughts for lessons... just choose the ones you're working on with your child. There is a second template with a body that you can optionally use.


scissors, glue, printer, paper

Thoughts for Lessons:


This craft has lots of circles plus a few rectangles and triangles to cut out -- good scissor practice! You can precut the template into separate pieces (roughly) to make it a bit easier for beginning crafters to cut out the circles.


Separate the circles, triangles and rectangles.


verbally instruct the children on how to assemble the shapes using the colors of the shapes. (ie: Take the pink circle and glue it on the grey circle.).


show the children two circles and ask -- is this one bigger, smaller or the same size as that one.


Count the circles, count the rectangles and count the triangles.

Assembly Directions:

Glue the two medium sized pink circles inside two of the large gray circles to make the ears.

Glue the ears to the third large gray circle (the head).

Glue the small circle eyes into the center of the head.

Glue the long rectangle (trunk) dangling down from the center of the head.

Glue the two skinny triangles, point down, to either side of the trunk to complete the elephant's head.

Assembly - Template 2:

to make the body, glue the head you've completed from template 1 onto the large body circle. glue the rectangle legs onto the bottom of the body glue the tail together from the largest triangle to the smallest and attach to the body
