    Learning About Ecosystems

    Does your child enjoy the replicas in our Safari Farm or our Wild Safarii® Wildlife collections? Why not take their learning to the next level by building a biome model to explore the ecosystems that their favorite animals live in? Whether you are looking for an after-school activity or something fun and educational to do on the weekend, building these models can be a great option.

                 

    You can start on your ecosystem model by first deciding which area you are going to focus on. You can let your child pick their favorite animal and then continue by researching the environment they live in. Different factors to look for are plant life, animal life, rocks, weather conditions and how the animals interact together in the area. Once you have researched the area you can start to build your model by using a cardboard box, or storage container. You can then fill the environment of your biome model with materials collected from around your house, the backyard, or even a local craft store.

    Once your environment has been built, you and your child can have fun placing our animal replicas inside the model appropriately. This activity will help give your child further dimension about the animals that they often play with all while having fun! It can also be fun for your kids to take pictures of their replicas as if they were in their native habitats. Featured above you will see a fan photo sent into us by Dary Caballero.

    Creating One-of-a-Kind Class Projects

    Building models and dioramas for class projects are a great way for children to learn about a particular subject in a “hands on” manner.  Our Wild Safari® line is the perfect accessory to spice up your child’s next school project, and is also a great way for children to have fun outside the classroom once their diorama is completed. 

               

                   

                                         

    With the help of our Wild Safari® series, a child can take their next art or science class project from boring and dreary, to exciting and lively, with one-of-a-kind, hand-painted, educational models.

    Capturing Realism

    Here at Safari Ltd. we put pride in the realistic qualities of our replicas. Every detail from the grain of the animals fur to the glass-like appearance of their eyes is done with intention. You might also be interested to find out that each of our replicas is hand-painted.

    Our realistic qualities have made our replicas perfect to use for class projects or photos in the wild to give a similar up-close feeling looking at the photographs than if they were looking at the real thing. 

    A fun activity for your students is to create a habitat for the animals you are studying and let your children use a classroom camera to try and make their photo look as the animal is in the wild. This activity is sure to put a smile on all of your students’ faces. 

    For more ideas on how to use our replicas for scenes of realism, please check out our Pinterest board.

    Teaching with Play Trays

    In honor of Educator’s Appreciation week, we’d like to share some ideas on creating interactive learning opportunities. Today’s post idea were sent in by our fan Nicole of Playtrays.com. Nicole shared with us that she uses our replicas to create play trays that can be used to create a hands-on learning environment.

                                 

    You can create your own play trays by using a tray, related props, and our replicas. This idea is perfect for educators that are looking for a way to enhance students’ learning. Whether you are studying the animals of Antarctica or the life-cycle of a frog, our replicas are perfect addition to get your students excited about learning.

    Safari Ltd. Supports

    Not only do we provide quality authentic replica collections and other educational products, but we are also support worthy causes! We are happy to support global efforts, animal protection and ecological sound business practices. Some of the organizations we support are:

                          

    Big Cat Rescue, a non profit educational sanctuary, is devoted to rescuing and providing a permanent home for exotic cats who have been abused, abandoned, bred to be pets, retired from performing acts, or saved from being slaughtered for fur coats, and to educating the public about these animals and the issues facing them in captivity and in the wild.

                           

    The mission of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is to save tropical plant diversity by exploring, explaining and conserving the world of tropical plants; fundamental to this task is inspiring a greater knowledge and love for plants and gardening so that all can enjoy the beauty and bounty of the tropical world.

                           

    National Eagle Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving and protecting our national bird, and to research about their reproduction. National Eagle Center has five resident education eagles that live in their facility, which is located on one thousand feet of Mississippi river shoreline in Wabasha, Minnesota.
