Lion





While learning about Africa, second grade students studied African animals like the lion. Students learned that the male lion has lots of hair around his neck called a mane. The mane is there to protect their throats during a fight and to help them look fierce! Students also learned lions are social animals and like to live in groups called prides. Second graders had a lot of fun creating these lion artworks using paint and oil pastels!
