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

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 animals are white?" They will then notice more than one white animal and have to look at another attribute. Recognizing these little details helps a child grow their category knowledge and learn new vocabulary!

What is Included:
- 12 miniature realistic farm animals. (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".

- 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.

My 18mo loves these so much I’m getting at least one more set! They are smaller than I imagined, but still great regardless. Very happy!

These are wonderful! I bought these for my two year old to keep busy while we homeschool. Turns out, not only does he love them, but so does my four year old. Win!

My preschoolers are going to LOVE this adorable new “work”. It’s very small and sweet, perfect for their little hands and great to help develop their fine motor skills. Wonderful quality, shipped on time. Five stars from me 👍🏼

Really nice set. I love that they're not all different or easily discernible animals vs cards. It's a challenge, even for my 4 year old (the 2 year old loves it too).
