Children love animals, and with the Old McDonald Animal Photos your students will develop language, participate in group activities and learn more about animals.

Each of the 20 animal card includes the animal name and the animal sound. All photos are taken in nature and show the animals in their natural habitats. The cards also work well in connection to science lessons and for ESL.

The 20 animal photo cards can be used time and time again for writing, oral language, descriptive language and to prompt creative thinking. The cards can be used with or without the Old McDonald song. They can also be with the Old McDonald class book.

As an animal lover myself, I love sharing the animals I've encountered with my students, and now you can too. We all know that animals inspire lots of excitement, now you can harness that excitement and turn it into oral language.
