Whale Games

I made 2 sets of matching whale cards. I chose favorites like Orcas, Blue, Narwhal, Beluga, etc. Then I found some very good black and white drawings of these whales and had them duplicated. The cards were mounted on cardstock and then laminated. One set had the name of the whales (in lower case) at the bottom under the picture, the other set was left with just the picture. I then lucked out and found some small, perfect replicas of all the whales. The object is for a young child to match the Orca card to the Orca name card, the Blue card to the Blue name card, etc. The child then finds the matching figure and places it at the bottom of the matched set. Took a bit of work but this is still one of the children’s favorite things in my classroom.
