3. Make a list of endangered animal species and let each of the children choose one of them (for example, an elephant, panda, whale, rhinoceros, turtle or gorilla).
4. Inflate a small balloon for each of the children.
5. Show malcom, how to stick strips of newsprint to the half of the balloon (the so-called. paper mache). Help each of the children put a layer of paper on the balloon, creating the mouth of a selected animal.
6. Do not forget to leave holes for the eyes, before the paper mass dries.

8. Turn on the music. Encourage the children to put on masks and to do the 'dance of endangered animals”.
