Jambo!

Jambo!

We are now in the continent of Africa. Africa is the world's second largest continent.  The longest river in the world is in Africa, do you know what it is?   For homework in the next two weeks, we will be studying the animals of Africa and writing reports.  What is your African animal, and what is one fun fact about your animal.

    1. Hi Andrew,
      I had no idea a lion could be that loud. I wonder how that could help a lion in the wild. What do you think?

    My favorite African animal is a zebra. Zebras have black and white stripes on their bodies, and each individual has its own unique pattern of stripes! Zebras also sleep while standing.
