PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a pack of 78 labelled animal picture cards with animals from all over the world!

I love clipart, but using real pictures/photos is valuable as well. To make learning a little more exciting I've designed these cards to look like polaroid photos so they look real.

There are many uses for these cards. Here are some things I've done with them before:

1. Categorise/sort the animals according to appearance, habitat, type, features. You can just pick the cards you want the children to sort.
2. Print out two sets and play memory.
3. Barrier games - 2 students sit back to back, each with one animal card and they have to describe the animals for their partner to guess.
4. Speech prompt (1 minute challenge) - Student pick out a card and have to give a 1minute speech about everything they know about the animal. The catch is they can't say "umm.. ahhh..." and to make it tricky I tell they can't pause for more than 3 seconds (this is a great talking activity).
5. Comparing & contrasting - Students receive two cards and they need to compare and contrast the features/habitat/appearance of the animals (I often provide a focus eg. appearance, habitats etc.)

Cut out the cards and laminate them for durability. Keep them as a valuable resource for your classroom!

Do let me know what great ideas you come up in using these cards. If there are any particular animals/creatures big or small you would like to see in this pack, please message me in the Q&A section of my store and i'll add them to the pack.

Happy teaching everyone!
