Early Learning Animal Puzzles! is a non-competitive game that can be completed individually or with a partner; differentiated activity; covers very basic skills and looks like a “big kid” game – great for special education or intervention!! These puzzles help to develop dexterity, speech and communication development, hand-eye coordination and visual discrimination.
Print out the puzzles and laminate them. Slice vertically so each piece has part of the photo and a number on it. Students put the numbers in order to reveal an animal when finished.
Use this game for math intervention for students in Preschool and Kindergarten and/or Special Education to help them learn numbers from 1-3.
Students engage with the photographs and are motivated to play the game because it does not “look” like a low-level activity. Students absolutely love this game and often play over and over again. It also can start some great conversations about the animals in the photographs, too!
