Suggestions on how to use these cards in the classroom
- Read through the deck of cards with the students.
- Pass out the cards randomly and have the students get themselves in the correct alphabetical order.
- Hand each child a card and have them act like whichever card they drew. Students can give clues and facts about the animal to try and get the other students to guess which animal it is.
- Put up an animal of the day/week and have additional activities or stories related to that animal.
“Thank you so much for sharing your craft with the Earth Room students! Your presentation was wonderful and they learned a lot. It isn’t easy to keep their attention but they were really interested in learning about your writing and illustrating experiences.” – Kathleen at Borton Magnet Elementary School
