Download your FREE WILD ANIMALS FLASHCARDS from The Teaching Aunt as additional instructional material to your zoo animal-themed preschool lesson.
We are now on the third installment of our free animals-themed flashcards series. Yay!
As I mentioned in my previous posts, the animal theme is so broad it should be divided into four categories:
- pet animals
- farm animals
- wild animals
- sea animals
Dividing the animal theme into categories ensures that all the topics and learning goals are achieved.
And you guessed right! I will list down effective techniques on how to teach about zoo animals.
How To Teach About Wild Animals To Preschool Students:
- Open the theme by watching a video about wild animals in their natural habitat. Drop vocabulary about animal movements like slither, climb, sprint, glide, etc. After the video, ask the students about their favorite wild animals.
- During Physical Education, or outdoor games, encourage the students to copy how wild animals move. Have an animal movement relay.
- Ask the students to bring a stuffed toy or picture of their favorite wild animal.
- Display wild animals flashcards in the classroom. Or ask the children to draw wild animals and use them as decorations instead.
- Work on wild animals-themed worksheets that target the following lesson objectives:
- animals and their young
- tracing and writing words
- counting animals
- addition and subtraction problems
- Go on a field trip to the zoo.
I don’t know about your school, but our school has a planned field trip to the zoo every year. And even though the older preschool students have gone to the zoo a couple of times already, they still enjoy and look forward to it.
It is really such a joy to be a child!
