World Animal Activities

World Animal Unit - Worksheets Activities Montessori CardsIf your kids love animals, they are going to have fun with these two new activities!  In this fun board game, players race around the game board trying to be the first to collect an animal from each continent. If they are the first to cover all the continents on their player card, they win the game!

World Animals GameMy kids have always loved the hands-on nature of pin maps.  I added a new set of pages to make your own World Animals Pin Map activity!  There is an answer key, so your kids can check their answers to see if they got everything right.

I have added in more than 50 pages of new materials as we've gone through this unit! This is the second time we've done this unit. The last time we did it, my youngest was 9 and she said she definitely needed to review this material again. My 15 year old said she wanted to cover this material again... especially because we were going to be doing a number of labs once again.   Scientific Classification and Taxonomy Unit
