Make the most of your TOOBS figures with these African Savanna activities from the “Teaching with TOOBS” collection. This set uses ten figures from the Wild Animals TOOB—African elephant, tiger, hippopotamus, gorilla, rhinoceros, crocodile, panther, giraffe, lion, and zebra—and includes the following resources:
- The MONTESSORI MATCHING MAT builds sorting and classifying skills, vocabulary development, and knowledge of the African Savanna grasslands ecosystem.
-The ROLL AND COVER ADDITION GAME is a fun way to practice addition skills. Add a set of dice and let children roll their way to mastery. Children roll the dice, add the two numbers together, and then cover the sum with the matching TOOB figure.
-BEGINNING SOUNDS CARDS can be used with a dry erase marker or magnetic letters to match and write or match and spell.
-The ABC ORDER PRINTABLE highlights alphabetizing skills.
Technical info: Each image is a high-resolution photograph with a minimum of 300 dpi, and I’ve repeated the same photos throughout the set to further reinforce vocabulary development.
P.S.-If you’re not familiar with Safari TOOBS, I’ve included “What, Why, and Where to Buy” information in the preview. :-)
