Animal Families from Green Board Education
I am very proactive with regards to Olivia’s education. She is growing fast and I always try that I can support her every step of the way. She goes to school as well as enjoying our home learning sessions and for this, I am always on the look out for teaching resources. I was well happy when, I was asked to review the Animal Families card game from Green Board Education.
- 36 cards
- 9 animal families ( mammals, reptiles, fish, amphibians, molluscs, arachnids, birds,crustaceans, insects)
- 2 or more players
How To Play
This card game is perfect to teach animal classification, grouping, identifying vertebrates and invertebrates in a fun way like; snap, pairs, sorting activities and tree diagram work and of course using cards as flash cards.
How did we get on with our card game
Olivia and I enjoyed playing the card game, she can now identify vertebrates and invertebrates as well as grouping the cards into families. This game is covering 95% of Science and 5% of English but, I also find it helpful with my young reader. After we crack on the classification and grouping of animals, we then tried to read the name of each animals by covering the picture with my hand as well reading the animal families.
I also challenge Olivia with spelling games, I say the animal names and she writes them down on a paper. We also take turns, where she read out the animal names from the card she is holding while I write them down on the paper. Of course, I have to pretend that I don’t know how to spell other animal names and let her correct my spellings. Did you see what I did there? Not only she did read each animal name but, can also spell it. We also did some research of more animals to add to each groups and families.
The card game can be used in so many ways to adopt on your way of teaching as well as having fun. If you want to see more card games, do check out –HERE–
