This photo collection would make an excellent starting point for anyone starting the topic 'Africa' or looking at African animals.
The photos could be printed off and laminated and made into a colourful display.
The students could be given the photos and asked to research the animal and in the photo and prepare a report on who it lives.
It is a great set of resources for comparing and contrasting life in their town and life across Africa.
