What will my students learn?
The playful nature of this craft means that you can be very flexible about what language you want to focus on. If you are using it to complement the story, you can choose to target specific animal, directions or place vocabulary. For some ideas, see the Possible Language Focus.
Besides language, your students will develop their social skills, listening, speaking and even literacy skills.
There are opportunities to talk about different animals. The physical nature of this resource lends itself well to categorising animals according to different characteristics.
