Little learners love animals…and who doesn’t? Get kids excited about learning – and incorporate literacy, math, science, and more – with these fun center/small-group activity ideas:
Start by introducing the unit to your whole class of course. Show them a region on a globe and discuss that environment and habitat. Tap into prior knowledge by asking children which animals they think might live there and why. Engage kids with a fun verbal quiz using some fun facts from either the fact sheets that come with our Animal Magnetism Magnetic Wildlife Map Puzzles or the animal fact cards included with every other Animal Magnetism product. Next, split children into small groups and have them visit centers around the room, including:
Advanced students can also read and review the animal fact cards included in the Animal Magnetism Magnet Friends Big Packs, while students who are not ready to read can match mama animals to their babies on our free, downloadable Mama and Baby Masters.
Animal Magnetism Magnet Friends Big Packs come in two favorite themes: Wildlife and Farm. Each pack includes enough cool, animal-themed magnets (giant horseshoe magnet, mini horseshoe magnets, and magnet wands) and accessories (activity booklet; safe, low-power magnet marbles; animal fact cards, and free downloadable mini-books and masters) for your early learning centers.
And, Animal Magnetism Magnetic Wildlife Map Puzzles are a great way to reinforce your lessons, while providing beautiful, hangable décor for your classroom. Go wild today, with Animal Magnetism!
