After this experience, the children who were interested were able to do the same type of activity with picture cards.
The afternooners extended this activity by making their own collages of plants and animals. They looked through magazines and decided what would fit in each category. The only tricky one was coral. Looks like a plant but really an animal!
They really enjoyed seeing all of the pictures of the animals and plants. Their awareness of living creatures seemed to expand, and, they were able to practice their scissor skills!
Ask your child to identify various living creatures around you, then, take it one step further and ask if it a plant or animal!
