A freebie from South Africa!

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! :)

  1. What a great freebie Michelle! Thanks for sharing. I'm taking my kids to the zoo next week, and I may take this sheet along and let my sons add up the animals they find there!

    My 7 year old twins love animals and will enjoy this Math activity! Thanks :) Lisa

  5. Oh this is fantastic! I teach second and third grade (the ones this is geared to) and this is great for comparing numbers, graphing, and multiplying! It will also go hand in hand with our unit on animals that ends with a trip to the zoo! Thanks!
