These fact cards from Button & Squirt are the perfect gift for any animal lover, young or old!
Each animal card features an illustration on one side with the animals common name, then their scientific name, where they lived, what they ate and when they went extinct along with 3 facts, one of each is why they are now extinct on the back, and as with our other cards the background colour shows you where in the world they came from.
Use the cards to learn more about some of the amazing animals that we shared the earth with. Each card is also colour coordinated in a range of colours to show which area of the earth they are found in. On the back of each card are amazing facts about the animals.
They also make a fantastic home education resource providing a fun educational activity that will allow them to learn through play about amazing unusual animals from around the world.
There are lots of different ways to play and they really do appeal to all ages.
Some ways we play:
- Match up toys to the cards
- Play snap with the coloured backgrounds
- Find the carnivores and the herbivores
- Identify the animals
- Remember facts to win the cards
- Use them as resources at drawing time or inspiration for writing stories.
We love hearing how you play with yours too.
