  • Perfect for toddlers, preschoolers, those with special needs and occupational therapists!

  • This Montessori learning activity focuses on matching miniature dinosaur animals to their matching realistic photo cards. Children lay out the cards and place the miniature dino figurines on the matching picture.

  • What is Included: - 12 Safari LTD brand miniature realistic dinosaur figurines. (2 - 3 Long) - 12 laminated cards professionally printed on 100# cardstock and laminated with 5 mil lamination. The cards are classroom tough. Cards are 2.6 x 2.5 .

  • This activity focuses on more advanced preschool matching. The objects are not an exact copy of the photo so children need to carefully observe details to match correctly. Children problem solve by looking at distinctive attributes that they can see on both the object and the photo. They might ask themselves which dinos use all 4 feet? They will then notice more than one dinosaur with 4 feet and have to look at another attribute.

  • Please note this is a handmade item. I created the cards and have them professionally printed at a local family-owned print shop. I then package the animals and the cards in a plastic bag. Please see picture of packaging.

Matching Skill - Visual Discrimination: This activity focuses on more advanced preschool matching. The objects are not an exact copy of the photo so children need to carefully observe details to match correctly. Children problem solve by looking at distinctive attributes that they can see on both the object and the photo. Usually they will start by color and eliminate pictures that do not share the same color. They can also look at shapes, patterns and details. They might ask themselves which dinos use all 4 feet? They will then notice more than one dinosaur with 4 feet and have to look at another attribute. Recognizing these little details helps a child grow their category knowledge and learn new vocabulary! Extensions: - The photo cards include names of the animals so you can extend the play with researching the species! - This activity is small enough to take with you and can be extended into pretend play or sensory bins with the mini figurines. - You can have the children sort and categorize the figurines by like traits on their own. What they are learning while having fun - Matching objects to pictures encourages one-to-one correspondence (basic math skill) and visual discrimination. - Observing and comparing small details to match correctly. Comparing involves identifying similarities and differences among objects - Children can group the figures by similar traits - this is sorting and classifying! - Children gain experience with one-dimensional print, and learning to connect real objects to print. I also have many other matching sets including sea life, safari, insects, pets, rain forest and other collections. These bags contain small parts that may not be appropriate for children under the age of 3. Adult supervision is required.
