Both my 3-year old and my 5-year old loved interacting with these posters over the weekend. Besides the discussion around what the animals are and where to find them in their habitat, the cutting and manipulation of the cut out animals was excellent fine motor practice.
What I think my boys loved most was the large scale format. The posters are designed to print on 4 different sheets of 8×11 paper, and then you pull them together to form a giant poster which can hang on a wall or remain a tabletop activity.
The animals must be cut out. Then, they can then be pasted for a finalized poster or kept loose to place over and over again in the animals prime habitat.
This activity is a great way to build fundamental understanding around animals in their habitats and the layers or zones in which they live. They also provide opportunities for cutting, matching, and pasting. I highly recommend these for home or classroom use.
I’ve spoken to Sheri and she is still in the process of creating more habitats! Yay 🙂 Currently, the three habitats featured are: The Amazon Rainforest, The Deciduous Forest, and The North American Prairie. Stay tuned for more habitats and fun.
