Here’s how to introduce the concept:
Working day 1. Question the small children if they know what the word ‘jungle’ implies. Make clear what a jungle is for all those who may possibly not know, and have a photo of a jungle so they can associate your description with the image.

Experience totally free to have an open up discussion with the kids. Chat about the hues of the animals, their teeth, their eyes, which animal does each individual baby like ideal, etcetera.
If you want, you can also touch on what the animals take in but make certain you continue to keep it simple. The little ones at this phase in lifestyle never need to commence studying about the terms carnivores, herbivores, and many others. Just retain matters easy like indicating, a panther eats meat, a monkey eats fruit, a giraffe eats depart from tall trees, and so on.
The kids will possibly want to know where the animals properties are in the jungle. This data need to be effortless to come across by the publications and shots you have. If not, the library will have publications on the personal animals you are conversing about which will give you the details you need.
