These Montessori classification cards have big, beautiful pictures, and are a perfect addition to your animal habitats or biomes unit. The 42 animal card set contains seven creatures from each of six different biomes. Children can sort them into their respective habitat by placing them under the correct title card.
The sorting cards include all types of vertebrates except fish, as well as a variety of invertebrates. They also manage to represent every continent in the world.
The cards can be printed onto white card stock, and laminated if desired. Grey lines let you know where to cut. Below each image is a colour coded label you can also cut out and glue to the back of the card. The labels let you know the name of the animal and the continent it lives on, and the colour codes match the biomes each animal belongs to, for a built-in control of error.
The title cards have representative images in their backgrounds, so even if you are working with children who don't yet know how to read, they can still use the cards.
Very young children may prefer working with two or three categories at a time. No problem! Just introduce half the set one day, and the other half another day.
Size: 14cm x 14 cm animal cards, 10 cm x 5 cm title cards for each of the biomes.
