Lions Lapbook Information
You can learn about lions with these lessons found in the lapbook.
Life in the Pride:
A “pride of lions” is the name given to a group of lions which could be anywhere between 3 and 40 lions, of which no more than 2 will be male. The females are all related and are the permanent members of the group. Males only stay from 2 to 4 years before another male ousts them. The new male will kill the cubs already in the pride.
Lions are at the top of the African food chain; they are the largest carnivores in Africa and hunt at dawn and at dusk. When a lion is chasing prey, it can run the length of a football field in six seconds! A lion’s eyes have a horizontal streak of nerve cells, which improves their vision following prey across a plain. Lions normally feast on antelopes, zebras, wildebeest, impala, giraffe, buffalo and wild hogs. Occasionally, a lion will eat rhinos, hippos, hares, birds and reptiles. If food is scarce, a lion will even attack an elephant.
A Lion’s Life:
Lion’s only spend a small time hunting. A lion’s life is mostly filled with sleeping, napping, and resting! In fact, a lion might be found lying around for 21 hours each day. Since lion’s are good climbers, they are often found resting in trees.
