Make learning about pets for extra fun for kids!
Our Baby Pet Hop can make learning about different types of pets a fun, movement-based activity. This mat is suitable for preschoolers and kindergartners and is a great way to teach students about the types of pets and their baby names.
Baby Pet Hop features illustrations of both adult and baby pet 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 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 household pets. They will also learn how to read the pet animal names, which promotes their letter and word recognition skills.
Movement-based learning helps boost students’ learning comprehension while aiding in the development of gross motor skills. Take a look at our activity database for more activities and sensory play to keep your students on their feet.
