Let's Learn About Animals is a NO PRINT interactive PDF that can be used on the iPad or any other tablet. It was created in order to teach young children about zoo and farm animals and also work on the skills of categorising and reasoning. This product has the feel of an app and children will love the cause and effect nature of touching the screen and receiving instant feedback about their answers. Please note that this product can not be used as a printable and must only be purchased if you have access to an iPad or tablet.

The Farm Story and The Zoo Story: two stories which introduce common farm animals and zoo animals, and tells two to three facts about each animal. These stories include cute graphics to keep children engaged, rhyme, and buttons on each page which give opportunities to predict which animal will be on the next page!
Categorisation: This is a game in which the child is shown an animal and has to decide whether the animal is a ‘farm animal’ or a ‘zoo animal’ by tapping the respective buttons on the bottom of the screen. Each correct answer uncovers a piece of a puzzle, eventually revealing a mystery animal. Have the child try and guess what the animal will be!
Guess Who: There are three categories within this game. You can choose which category you want to play, depending on what you are targeting with your student. The three categories are ‘farm animals,’ ‘zoo animals,’ or ‘both.’ After tapping on one of the categories, the child is shown 6 boxes. Each box represents a mystery animal within the category that you have chosen. The adult or another student can read out the clues one at a time to the child who is guessing and the child must then guess which animal is being described. The language used within this game is very similar to the stories. Press ‘answer’ to reveal the answer and then move on to the next box. Once the child has revealed all six animals, he/she has won!
