Description of Activity
Children create an animal to take home.
Say, in these words or your own:
We've talked about many different kinds of animals today. Can you remember some of them? [Wait for responses.]
We will use clay to create an animal-any one you choose. It might be one of the animals whose kindness we heard about, or it may be another animal that you know.
Give each participant a ball of clay. Have children share their creations with each other.
