This 96 page Safari themed packet of resources is full of fun learning experiences that are perfect for the end of the year, for summer school, and for enrichment programs. There are enough materials here to spend a whole week doing a variety of activities. Each day contains at least one reading activity, one writing, one math, one science, and one social studies lesson. Most items are ready to print and go, with materials you already have in your classroom. There is also a detailed set of Teacher Notes with helpful tips for you to use. I also included a list of recommended books, a safari themed list of snacks, and an art project. This unit will keep your students busy and happily learning with lots of interactive materials!
