Bundle Description

This is a great bundle! It combines serious learning all about the safari, focused on the "Big Five" (the Cape buffalo, the African bush elephant, the leopard, the rhino, and the lion), combined with a really fun craft where students will make a lion art piece.

The Big Five Safari and Lion Craft Bundle (107 pages, not including instructions to user) contains

1. The Big Five Safari! Lesson plus Learning Stations (92 pages), consisting of two parts:

  • Part 1: An Introduction to the Big Five is a lesson in a direct instruction format that introduces students to many of the concepts they will learn about more in-depth during Part 2.
  • Part 2: Learning Stations - the Spoor Lab is a stations activity that will be set up in the classroom. Six stations will cover each of the Big Five animals in depth as well as utilize the basics of tracking so students can identify which animals left which "spoor" (the Afrikaans word for animal tracks).

2. Lion Craft - Student-made Painted-papers Mane and Directed-drawing Lion’s Face (15 pages), consisting of two parts:

  • Part 1: Students make painted papers and Zulu-patterned borders
  • Part 2: Students draw lion faces and assemble final pieces, using what they made in Part 1

We recommend presenting Part 1 of each product on one day (first the Big Five Safari, then the Lion Craft), and presenting Part 2 of each product on the next day (first the Big Five Safari, then finishing up the Lion Craft).



"In my nearly 30-year career in education, I have never seen children so engaged in their learning! International Travel Academy is truly a multi-disciplinary approach that enables children to explore the world in an unforgettable way. Students get a real sense of what it means to respect another country's heritage, beliefs and ways of living, thus making them more tolerant and internationally-minded. I highly recommend this program to educators and parents wishing to make learning come to life!"

– A Former Assistant Superintendent at Atlanta Public Schools

“(The five-day program) has given our school the unique opportunity to provide students with incredible experiences that align so well with our IB focus. Each spring with family and community support, our school essentially is transformed into our country of study for one full week. Teachers are easily able to follow the daily curriculum and activities provided, and the students truly enjoy this special week of instruction. From the art projects to festive food tastings, cultural dress, music, dance and traditions, the students spend this entire week engaged in new and exciting experiences of a new country. I would encourage all schools (IB, or not) to jump in and make a week like this happen for their students. It is incredibly gratifying to spend this week with kids as they come together to learn and share experiences like these across grade levels, school-wide. When we hear such rich discussion in classrooms and read their detailed writing about what they've learned as part of (the) week, it makes all the preparation, planning and expense totally worth it!! “
