Animals are a big part of young children's lives. This product was designed to build vocabulary and knowledge of a wide variety of animals. These are a great addition to a wide variety of themes including many book themes. These work great as one-on-one activities but also for small groups.
TO USE: Pick animal cards that work best for your goals/themes. Then place the cards out and have children place the cards on the right animal mat. A venn diagram is also included to help introduce the concepts of similarities and differences. Separate animal cards are provided for the venn diagram.
* 40 Animal mats (including pets, insects, ocean animals, farm animals, zoo animals and arctic animals).
* Each animal has 6 cards that contain facts (e.g. Owl: has wings, eats mice, lays eggs, lives in barns, lives in trees and is awake at night)
* Venn diagram to start teach comparing and contrasting. 40 animal cards are also provided.
TO MAKE: Print off the pages, I usually use cardstock, and laminate. Cut out the cards. One idea for storing the cards is to duct tape a small plastic bag to the back of the animal card.
