The lion is a large, very strong mammal with short tan fur. Male lions have a mane of longer hair around the neck and head. Lions live in the plains and grasslands of Africa and the Asiatic lion in the Gir Fur Forest of India. Lions live in groups called a pride. Lions are carnivores and are closely related to tigers, leopards, and other big cats that roar. The African lion is endangered.

I'm A Lion
(Sung to: "Three Blind Mice")
Submitted by Jill
I'm a lion, I'm a lion
Hear me roar, hear me roar
I love to sleep out in the sun
And chase other animals just for fun
In all the jungle I'm Number One, I'm a lion
I’m a Lion
I love to sleep out in the sun (rest cheek on hand)
And chase other animals just for fun (run in place)
In the jungle I’m number one! (point to self, then lift up pointer finger like number 1)
I’m a (ROAR!)…

**Depending on the age of the children, you can pre-cut out the center of the plate and the strips of mane and the ears for them.
Begin by showing the kids how to cut the center of the plate out so their faces will show through. Then they should cut varying lengths of rectangle pieces of the orange and yellow paper for the mane. Cut ears out of the brown paper.
Glue the mane all around the edge of the plate and allow to dry. Glue the ears to the top portion of the lion's head. Glue the craft stick to the BACK of the bottom of the face to use as a handle.
Put the mask over your face and roar as loud as you can!!
