How to Use:

Parts of a turtle – Gather books on turtles for children to explore. Print the posters and label cards on cardstock and laminate. Cut individual label cards. Attach clear velcro to the poster without labels and label cards. Introduce the poster – name all parts of the turtle and invite the students to share their thoughts on the various functions of each part.
