Pass round the pictures of the various endangered species and tell the children a little bit about them.
Let the children pick which animal they are each going to make a model of, though don’t make them tell the others at the start, as sometimes the model can become something else as they work.
Put on the background noises while the children work. Anyone who finishes before the others can make another animal.
Circletime Discussion Points
- Have the children tell the others what they have made a model of. Do they know of any creatures that have become extinct?
- Why are some creatures becoming extinct?
- Do they think humans could ever become extinct?
The models may be painted another week
