Animal faces cut from public domain photographs give students an up close and personal look at some of the amazing creatures of the African savanna. Each image has a related text which can be printed on the back. Students may use these materials to learn information, make presentations, and act out real life events or stories they’ve written. Use them for puppet shows, songs, story telling, introducing animals, observations, sorting, classifying, and characterizations. Your students will love working with these realistic animal faces!
To make a puppet—leave the eyes in, print the information files on the back of each, and attach a painter's stick
To make a mask—cut the eyes out, and attach elastic or fabric ties
