Zoo Animal Picture Memory

Zoo Animal Picture Memory

MORE THAN JUST A MEMORY GAME!! Though this was created as a memory game, its cards can be used for so many other fun and educational activities, games and study aides. Print these pages out double-sided. This will make the page containing a colorful design the cover, or top, of the cards. Laminate the printed sheets to make for more durable playing cards (printing with card stock can also help with durability). Cut the cards along the black line. Once cut, mix the cards up, lay them out, and take turns flipping cards over. Kids will be exercising their memory, learning, and having fun while doing so! :)

Pokemon Field Guide for Living Things Project/Character Analysis

Pokemon Field Guide for Living Things Project/Character Analysis

This living things field guide can be used as the culminating activity for a living things unit or for a simple research project on living things, habitats, interdependence, and survival needs. Students’ “Pokedecks” entries could be one page in a classroom created field guide focused on a specific ecosystem, or each team could create their own field guide and “battle” the animals they have collected. This activity is such a fun way to “catch them all” while meeting the Standards for heredity SC.L.16.1 and interdependence SC.L.17.1 and SC.L.17.2. This could also be adapted for fictional characters. For example, if you were reading “The Giver,” you could base this on the protagonist, Jonas. In the Evolutions section, you might write naive, aware, and risk-taker as his evolutions. His weakness, could be fear, connection to family, or the community’s values. Under stats, his HP (or health) would differ based on the part of the story you used (and would need to be justified), while his attack would be strong since he has the power to cripple the entire community. The summary would include reasons the character is significant, and so on.
