Animals

  • Play Clothespin Animal Game
    1. Draw & cut out farm animal bodies (without the legs). I laminated mine.
    2. Paint 2 clothespins to match each body (ex: 2 brown clothespins as legs for brown horse body).
    3. Let the kids snap the matching clothespin legs on the bodies & stand them up. Lots of fun!
  • Sing "Old McDonald Had a Farm"

  • Match pictures of mom & baby animals.
    1. To start, use these adorable mom & baby matching cards made by Lawteedah! Click here to download her whole animal unit.
  • The Mailbox, Preschool, 2006-2007 Yearbook, pg 292 and 293 has a great lift the flaps book about animal tails.
  • Take a trip to the zoo, a farm, or even a pet shop!

Snack Idea: Animal crackers … we always sort them into piles first!
