Go on an adventure with animals in North America!
Explore native North American animals and their corresponding babies using our American Baby Animal Hop floor mat. This list of North American animals is a great way to turn science class into a movement-based activity. Let your preschoolers and kindergartners go “wild” as they learn about these common animals found around the continent.
This colorful floor mat features seven pairs of North American animals and their offspring. Measuring 38 inches wide and 92 inches long, there is plenty of room for multiple students to play and learn at the same time. Whether using it for science class or during free time, this mat will encourage active learning and collaborative play.
