Animals of United Kingdom.
I have been wanting to do soe activities on both nocturnal animals and animals that migrate, hibernate or adapt. As I was making some lists of animals it occured to me that I needed to make a more generic set of cars BUT that I should then make some cards for children to sort the cards.
So, basically what I have ended up with is a set of cards of animals that live in United Kingdom – this list is far from exhaustive but I hope covers animals from a wide variety of areas and from different areas in the animal kingdom.
To make up the cards have have backed them on to coloured card based on the Animal Kingdom – just as a reminder the colour coding according to Montessori is:
Mammal – Red
Bird – Blue
Fish – Light Green
Reptile – Brown
Amphibian – Purple
Mollusca – Grey
Arthropoda – Yellow
I have also created some cards to use as headings for sorting. They are:
Here are some sorting cards for Oviparous (Egg laying) or Viviparous (Live Young)
So you can basically use these cards in so many ways. I will start looking at the animals that migrate, hiberate and adapt to winter in the UK.
And finally sorting by which animal type they are:
I have also made control charts for each grouping.
Going forward I hope to make these cards for every continent.
You might also like the Sun Game cards that I have made. The Sun Game is key in the KUW curriculum for Montessori and these Beautiful cards are easy to make. Just back them on Dark Yellow card for the Plants – Yellow for the Herbivores – Lighter Yellow for the Carnivores and Pale Yellow for Omnivores.
