    Alternatively, print color pages for sorting. After cutting (and laminating) mark the flip side of each animal card with the corresponding color using stickers, pencils, or permanent markers for self-check. After sorting animals into the continents, children can flip all animal cards and self-correct if needed.

    For smaller size cards, check the ‘print 2 pages per sheet’ option.
    Gather world continent maps and print them on A3 paper if you can. Invite the children to sort toy animals or cards into continents they belong.

    PowerPoint file contains all the same resources as the main file. The difference is that you can edit all continent and animal labels if you wish to change the font or translate it into a different language.

    Don’t forget to gather animal figurines to create fun hands-on picture-to-image matching activity for your students.
