About the same time we studied the world biomes years ago, my son was *really* into reptiles. I made some cards for him back then and made them into pin-map pieces that he placed on our world map. There were reptiles from the rainforest, desert and tropical savanna.
I also used the cards as Montessori 3-Part cards (where he matched the name with the photo). You’ll find those larger cards below.
By the way, at the time we lived in Australia so the photos of those reptiles were taken by me. I often saw giant (4 foot long) perentie when I went running outbush! Pretty cool, huh?!
There are small pin-map pieces that we used with the World Biomes Pin Map (see this post for the free download for that).
I had the picture of the reptile on one side and the location on the back.
Here are country flags for the location where these reptiles were found. For one activity, my son sorted the cards under the appropriate country flag.
Below are the same reptiles as above, but the cards are larger. Sorry, but each of these is a separate download. I made them years ago, but still thought I’d share them in case anyone can use them! They’re free.
I’m curious to see if anyone find these useful. I’d love to hear from you here or over at our Homeschool Den Facebook page! ~Liesl and the kids
