You will need some paper plates, scissors, brightly coloured paints or felt tip pens. If you do not have paper plates, ask a grown-up to help you cut a large circle out of a cereal box packet or paper.
Many people go on safari to watch and find fascinating animals in their habitat, including at sunset. As the sun sets over the plains, animal shadows are created and a beautiful scene emerges.
Have a go at creating your own safari sunset. You can create your own animal shadows using black paper, print the templates from 'workbook 4' or if you have any animal toys you could go outside and draw around their shadows.

Tinga Tinga Art
Did you listen to Mrs O'Regan's story about a safari? Many of the animals you can see on safari come from Tanzania.
In the video below you can learn how to draw an elephant. One of my favourite ways to draw animals is in a style called Tinga Tinga. Edward Tinga Tinga painted bright and colourful pictures of animals in his country, Tanzania.
Get some paper and a pencil ready. You will need to press PAUSE to draw each part of the elephant. At the end, you can choose your own colours to colour in the elephant. Have fun!
