There are a zillion versions of the folk song "Old MacDonald" and they all sing different animals (or creatures) in different orders. I didn't want to make a new songbook for every variation so I create this game.
I play a game with my K-3's where we are 'Detectives" and must solve the 'puzzle' of placing the characters of the recordings in the correct order. Some recordings are cumulative and some are not but this is the best way I found to sing through every variation possible. It helps with sequencing, vocabulary, and pattern recognition.
The game board of 12 squares is copied intact on card stock, and the animals are copied on card stock and then cut into a 'deck of cards' with 24 possibilities.
So much fun!!!!
