This product is aimed at the younger learners, those just learning about animal groups and their attributes. Included in this product is:
~58! Zoo Animal Photographs (Real Animal Photos!)
~29 Category Sorting Cards (i.e., Fur, Feathers, Slither, Rough)
~7 Cut-and-Paste Sorting Printables
~5 Design-an-Animal Printables (based on real animal attributes)
~Circle and Bubble Maps
~What I learned Printable
~Animal Journal Cover
~Fins, Feathers and Fur Attribute Game (w/3 Spinners!), task card, cover sheet for file folder/tub
With these thematic activities, students will be familiarized with Mammals, Amphibians, Reptiles, Birds, and Insects. They will be able to sort various animals into different categories, based on attributes such as those that slither, climb, fly, etc.. There is a fun, full color game that utilizes the photo cards where students have to set out 5 cards, spin the attribute spinner, and turn over a card if they have an animal with that attribute. The first one to turn over all their cards is the winner. The game includes 3 different spinners to differentiate within your various learning levels of students. The cut-and-paste printables can also be used as homework, as can the Design-an-Animal sheets. The benefit of the Design-an-Animal sheets is that the students must create a new animal based on true attributes of an animal group, such as birds. These sheets also contain informational text that describe the attributes of that animal group to assist the students, especially if they complete the sheets at home. This product is a must for your young learners just beginning to explore animal groups and their attributes!
