In 3rd grade we talked about a cheetah and what makes them so different from a leopard and jaguar. I told my story about when I went to the zoo last summer and thought I was looking at a cheetah but it was actually a jaguar. So we found that cheetah are have 'tear marks' that make them stand apart from the other two cats. Cheetahs of course run faster and have solid spots where a leopard and jaguar have rosette type spots. Anyways, really cool info. Kids were into it. We did a cheetah drawing in black crayon on day one and painted with a yellow-orange color. Day to we used a variety of greens to create a grassy area and if time the students cut little black dots and glued around as a frame. Kids did an amazing job! Love these!
