My son loves to draw animals and came up with the idea of putting the animals he drew on a world map. A geography and natural world lesson combined, we did this activity together as a learning and art experience.

Time: 30 minutes
Age: 5-10's, over 10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Map of the world
Crayons
Paper

Method
Cut rectangles out of white paper, ours were about 6 cm by 8 cm.
While my son was busy drawing the animals, I drew an outline of the world. You could easily just print a map as well but we wanted something a bit bigger than a letter size sheet.

After drawing a blue giraffe and zebra, we talked about what colour a giraffe and zebra actually were and he used more relevant colours for the rest of the animals!

After he was done drawing his animals, we located each of the continents.

We went through the animals he chose to draw and pasted them to the appropriate continents. For animals that could live in more than one continent, we talked about the different places they could live and he chose where to put his picture.

The majority of true crocodiles can be found in Africa, Asia and Australia.


For those children that do not enjoy drawing, you could easily substitute animal stickers or stamps for the pictures. A great children's book to read about where different animals live is Imagine by Alison Lester.
