Animal facts coins motivate and educate students.
Need incentives for behavior?
Working with a PIRATE theme?
Getting ready for a field trip to the zoo?
Want a neat activating strategy for a unit on animals? (or an exit ticket!)
During our “Pirate Week” at the zoo, I needed treasure- so I created “tokens” for my students to collect.
To keep the treasure educational and interesting, I added animal trivia.
To keep the treasure FUN, I included two games for students to play using the tokens.
What a hit! All week, my students collected tokens. They excitedly quizzed each other with the “Animal Facts” game! At the end of the week, we paired up and played “I Love The Zoo!” (just like the card game “War.”)
I also made a printable parent letter- with an explanation and game instructions – plus 10 bonus tokens! Once Pirate Week was over, students took home the treasure for a continued educational experience! (The parents loved this!)
Included in this EDITABLE product is:
• 6 pages of Outrageous Animal Trivia Tokens (120 coins)
• 3 pages of illustrations for the flip side of Tokens (60 coin back images- original)
• Game instructions for 2 games
• Parent letter with 10 Bonus Tokens
• 1 page Additional Character/ Conservation Token (20 coins)
[Total of 150 Tokens and 60 Token backs]
Sample Trivia Token: Butterflies taste with their feet. (Yes, this is indeed true!)
Sample Character/ Conservation Token: I will make choices that influence the environment in a positive way!
NOTE: This product is entirely in black and white.
The tokens are square which make this printable easy to cut. NO PREP! Simply copy, cut, and pass out!
Ask your students to color the illustrations for the flip side of each token. Each page of illustrations can be used to copy front/back with all pages of tokens. (Or, if you want to keep with the pirate theme, you could choose to print tokens on gold card stock- and perhaps add glitter!) Laminate- and the tokens will last!
Tokens are a perfect activating strategy (and exit ticket) for a unit on animals. Tokens are great incentives/ rewards to give out for good behavior. Tokens are wonderful right before a field trip to the zoo!!
Even older students LOVE to learn about animals. Pass these out to your high school students and they will be amazed at the outrageous animal trivia! What a great way to start a research unit on animals!
If you are having a PIRATE celebration, this pirate treasure is such a great alternative to expensive trinkets or sugary treats.
My students made a Pirate Treasure Bag at the beginning of the week to keep their “booty” and they indeed treated the Outrageous Animal Trivia Tokens as their “treasure”!
Of course, a pirate theme is not necessary. Tokens can be used in the classroom just to focus on animals!
Let the treasure hunt begin! Argh!!
Note: Because this was so successful with my students, I plan to make more Outrageous Animal Trivia Tokens. If you are interested, please follow my store. You will receive email alerts when I add new products.
