Make learning about animals extra fun!
Kids love animals! Our Baby Animal Hop can make learning about animals for kids a movement-based activity. This mat is ideal for preschoolers and kindergartners and is a great way to teach students about different types of baby animals.
Baby Animal Hop features illustrations of both adult and baby animals that are sure to capture the imagination of young learners. At 38 inches wide and 92 inches long, this mat has plenty of space for multiple students to play and learn. Whether using it for science class or during free time, this mat will encourage active learning and collaborative play.
After hopping on this mat, students will be able to identify common animals. They will also learn how to read the adult and baby animal names, which promotes their letter and word recognition skills.
Who knew baby animal lessons could be so fun? Movement-based activities will boost learning comprehension and help young students develop gross motor skills. Take a look at our activity database for more activities and sensory play to keep your students on their feet.
