Help 125 SA kids to care for their environment

Dear Supporter,

We thought through this report, we would share some ways in which we deliver environmental education to the children we work with through an example class held this month, written by one of our volunteer interns.
Firstly, we used flashcards with pictures of various animals, asking them to identify them; their gorgeous faces lighting up when they got it right and were rewarded with stickers.

We then divided into 3 groups and moved round 3 stations. One group put together 3-D puzzles of an elephant, a lion and a giraffe; another group matched the name of an animal to a silhouette image. Thirdly, to teach them about food chains, we’d drawn animals onto paper plates and asked the children to match food such as impala, leaves or insects to the correct plate. For instance, the impala would go on the lion plate. The kids loved this and obviously enjoyed the interactive learning. We encouraged them to answer individually and also helped them with their English. 
We used the rest of the session to get to know the children’s favourite animals and ambitions and as we left there were high fives and thumbs up all over the place! After the success of our new puzzles and games, we can’t wait for our next trip and are busy coming up with new activities to build on the children’s knowledge and appreciation for the awesome wildlife on their doorstep!

Thanks for your support for this worthwhile project.
