Africa Big 5 Little 5 3-Part Cards

We all know about the famous Big 5, but who knew about the Little 5?  These fascinating animals, from the continent of Africa, all share some similarity to each other in looks, and their names.  The classified cards not only help improve the Child’s vocabulary, they also act as a matching game.  Once the Child learns their names, they can match the cards, big and small.

Description

The Big Five embodies adventure in the African bush-veld, and photographic safari in the dry, dusty plains.  These activities are generally out of reach for most people, but we can bring the excitement, and interest to the children through the Africa Big 5 Little 5 – 3-Part Cards activity.  This is a really fun activity for the early learner in pre-school.

Traditionally, 3-part cards are used to increase the Child’s vocabulary with the correct name for objects.  However, this activity also introduces interesting animals who are related, purely through their names.  The concept of comparative nouns is presented through the size of the animals.

Examples of the Word Cards:

Big 5 Little 5 Similarity
elephant elephant shrew They both have long trunks
leopard leopard tortoise They both have similar markings

    I never knew about the little 5 until I saw this product. It opens a lot of discussion in the classroom.
