The other day, Aidyn and I went on a "virtual safari" thanks to our special edition of The Lion King. Within the second disc is a cute interactive program featuring Timon and Pumbaa reeling through the African safari. So we played along. Aidyn decided all the turns to make, and he named all the animals we encountered along the way.
He also watched The Lion King, and I reiterated where lions are from. He has also seen Go, Diego, Go: Safari Rescue, and he brushed up on already-familiar African animals such as elephants, prairie dogs, and hawks.
I picked up more African books at the library and have a zebra craft idea to work in.
