Head to the Resource Library to download the free sorting cards – Viviparous and Oviparous Animals Sort. It includes 20 labeled picture cards for sorting.

Use these cards to support a child’s interest in topics and expose them to new vocabulary. Print on cardstock and laminate for longer use. After cutting cards, draw with a marker or stick dot stickers to the back of each set – one color for each set. Place the label cards in a row. Explain the difference between the two categories of animals. Invite the child to sort cards into two categories. Please note that most of the cards are self-explanatory – oviparous animals are presented with eggs in some cases. The goal is for children to grasp the concept and have a visual presentation to learn the difference between the two. You might like to talk about marsupial animals when talking about the kangaroo. After the child completed the task, invite him or her to flip the cards and self-check. Each card has to be under the correct category based on the dot color.
