Matching Animals! 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 matching cards help to promote visual discrimination skills.
Print out these pages, laminate them and cut them so there is one animal on a card. Students match the animals into piles. You can either place the cards face up or face down, depending on the child’s skill level.
Use this game for students in Preschool and Kindergarten and/or Special Education to help with visual discrimination.
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!
