Beavers sort the animals.
Beavers play an animal memory game.
Beavers identify the animals.


Animal flash cards - sparkle box ones attached


Give each beaver an animal card. The beavers sort the animals according to the category given e.g. size, habitat, type (pet, woodland, jungle etc), habitat (country or climate).
To make this challenging and more fun the beavers could communicate only by animal noise - this works well when sorting by size. Could also communicate only by moving like the animal.

Print 2 sets of each and play a memory game or work in pairs to identify the animals using them as flash cards.
