Farm Animals and Numerals

Farm animals and numerals-01


pictures (or stickers) of farm animals
copy machine
rubber cement
flannel board


What to do

1. Locate pictures of farm animals and cut them out, or use stickers from a farm animal sticker book. Copy the pictures to make sets of different numbers of animals (for example, one horse, two cows, three sheep, four goats, five pigs, six geese, seven hens, eight rabbits, nine cats, and 10 chicks).

2. Glue the sets of animals to tagboard. Laminate for durability, and cut out.

3. Prepare for flannel board use by using rubber cement to glue felt to the backs of the pictures.

4. Cut out the numerals 1 to 10 from felt.

5. Place the animal sets on the flannel board. Invite one child at a time to count the number of animals in each set and place the correct numeral next to the picture.
