Math : Animals > Farm

Animal Match added 4-2-99 Original Author Unknown

Make animal cards by gluing or drawing pictures of adult farm animals, their babies, and the products they provide on separate index cards. Examples: adult cow, calf, dairy products; sheep, lamb, wool clothing; hen, chick, eggs.

Mix up the cards and ask the children to match the adult animal to the baby animal, and to match the animal to the product it provides. Can the children say the name of the adult animal? The baby animal? Imitate the animal sound? Think of more animal products?

Turkey Body added 4-2-99 Original Author Unknown

Cut five turkey body shapes out of brown felt and fifteen feather shapes out of red, yellow, and orange felt. Number the turkey body shapes from 1 to 5 and put them on a flannel board. Place the feather shapes in a pile. To play the game, have the children take turns selecting a turkey, identifying the number on it and adding that many feathers to it. You could also do this in circle time and have all the children work together to get the feathers on the turkeys.

Whose Nest? added 4-2-99 Original Author Unknown

Cut five mother hen shapes, five nest shapes and fifteen egg shapes out of felt. Number the hens from 1 to 5. Glue a different number of eggs (from 1 to 5) on each nest shape. Place the nests and the mother hens on a flannel board. Let the children help the mother hens find their nests by counting the eggs and matching each hen to the appropriate nest.

Chick Sequencing Cards added 4-2-99 Original Author Unknown

Make sequence cards showing the different stages of a chick hatching. Draw pictures of the egg in its nest, the egg cracking, the chick partly out of the egg and the chick completely hatched. Mix up the cards and give them to the children. Let them put the cards in order.

A Dozen Eggs added 4-2-99 Original Author Unknown

Number twelve eggs or Ping Pong balls 1 through 12 with paint or a marking pen. Have the child place the eggs in numerical order in an egg carton. To make the activity easier for younger children, write the appropriate numeral in the bottom of each section of the egg carton. Talk about the word "dozen." What other items are sold by the dozen?
