Animal Match - EXOTIC TROPICAL BIRDS - Miniature Animals with Matching Cards - 2 Part Cards. Montessori learning toy, language materials
This Montessori learning activity focuses on matching miniature exotic tropical birds to their matching realistic photo cards. Children lay out the cards and place the miniature bird replica on the matching picture. This activity is small enough to take with you and can be extended into pretend play with the mini animals.
Species include: White Ibis, Parakeet, Green Parrot, Flamingo, Keel-Billed Toucan, Cockatoo, Hummingbird, Quetzal, Yellow Macaw, and Snowy Owl
Matching Skill - Visual Discrimination:
This activity focuses on more advanced preschool matching. The objects are not an exact copy of the photo so children need to carefully observe details to match correctly. Children problem solve by looking at distinctive attributes that they can see on both the object and the photo. Usually, they will start by color and eliminate pictures that do not share the same color. They can also look at shapes, patterns, and details. They might ask themselves "which birds have a colored tummy?" or "which has spiky head hair?" Recognizing these little details helps a child grow their category knowledge and learn new vocabulary!
What is Included:
- 10 miniature plastic Safari LTD bird figurines. (approx 2-3" long)
- 10 laminated cards professionally printed on 100# cardstock and laminated with 5 mil lamination. The cards are classroom tough. Cards are 2.6"x 2.5"
