Objective: To familiarize with the different biomes of the world and the animals that thrive in each habitat. To learn the differences of each biome and be able identify their locations in the map.
A wide variety of animal figures from Safarti Toobs and Schleich.
1. Presentation of the habitat pictures, map and description of the habitat. The pictures will give the child an idea how each habitat looks like, the map will give them a visual perspective of how "big" each of the biomes are and their locations.
I forgot to mention that my son has a fascination with maps. That's the reason why I included the maps in the file as well. I think it helps him to visualize the planet and what it's made of.
2. We took the animal cards and identify the animals of each biome.
3. Using the cards, we took out his animal figure collections and look for the match of the animals (if we have one).
Now this is my son's favourite activity, the matching and sorting. He loves doing this activity over and over again.
But of course, if you don't have animal figures to go along with this, the 10 animal cards for habitat that goes with the file is more than enough.
And look who joined us in this activity!
Our next target his is to see how live in their respective environment, how they adapt and how they "coexist".
