North American Wildlife Skip Counting Puzzles Free PDF
This post has a new free set of skip counting puzzles! North American Wildlife (non-affiliate link) is well represented in the Safari Ltd. Toobs realistic miniatures. The animals included in this skip counting puzzle pack PDF include a beaver, big horn ram, bison, elk, grizzly bear, moose, mountain goat, mountain lion, pronghorn buck, raccoon, river otter and white wolf. A few additional animals are included, as well. The puzzles may be used with or without the animals, but of course it would be ever so much more fun to have the realia available for the children. Realia are objects and material from everyday life, especially when used as teaching aids. Safari Ltd. products are all realia and so helpful in bringing the world to children.
Product information is available at this link (non-affiliate link). If you are ever wondering what is included in each set of TOOBS please refer to this post at Living Montessori Now as Deb has a post with the answer keys for which animal is which (the puzzles are self-correcting, or please check the free instant download PDF to see the correct puzzle placement).
These puzzles may be printed, cut apart, and even laminated for longer use. Some children will be able to work on puzzles 2, 5, and 10. Children learning to multiply will enjoy the challenge of the other numbers. Select pages to print as is appropriate for your children or classroom.
Facts and information about some of the animals included in this set are available at this link on the North American Wildlife product page at the Safari Ltd. site
Playing inside! Using flashlights can add to the dramatic play and the children’s imaginations.
Playing outside! What long shadows the animals have in winter days when the sun’s rays hit the earth almost at a slant part of the day. Children like to check their own shadows from time to time, as well.
Yes, I bought my own toys.
