1. Class activity: Mom and baby Match - There are 42 pictures of baby animals and their parents. (Two different sizes of pictures). By group, students make a Mom-Son T chart in a large construction paper; or play a game.
Mix-N-Match game: Students mix, repeatedly quizzing new partners and trading cards. Afterward, they rush to find a new partner with the card that matches theirs.
2. The kids match up mothers and babies and justify their matches.
3. Center Instructions: The students place the animal parent picture next to the baby and write the animal name on the line.
4. Venn Diagram
The pictures are awesome in both color and black and white.
