Animals of North America
Learn about the animals of North America and their habitats!
You will learn where each animal lives on the North American continent, several facts about each animal, and their current conservation status.
Lesson #1 contains the Information Center with all the facts:
Touch an animal in the photo-strip to change the featured animal on the page. Touch the Map button to see the animal's habitat highlighted on the map. Touch the Speaker button to hear the correct pronunciation of the animal name. Touch the Definition button to see and hear a detailed description of the animal as well as the Animal Facts box, containing dimensions, weight and conservation information. A list of Conservation definitions can be seen by touching the button on the top bar.
In Lessons #2 & #3 assemble the North American Habitat maps by finding the animal prompted by the shown habitat or name. This activity expands the Continent Box activity found in the Montessori classrooms
In the first habitat map lesson children have to look for the animal that corresponds to the name shown at the top, as well as, the habitat shown on the map. When they touch the correct animal card, a representative animal shape will transfer to the map as the name of the animal is heard aloud.
In the second habitat map lesson children have to look for the animal that corresponds to the shown habitat only! This is more challenging, however, you will be pleasantly surprised how fast you will learn to memorize the animal habitats!
For 2017 we've added a new activity: The Animal Map! Drag and place the animal shapes onto the map. When you matchup the shapes correctly, the animal piece will snap into position on the map and the name of the animal can be heard aloud.
This Montessori application was co-developed and approved by an AMI certified, Montessori teacher with over forty years experience educating children! Thanks for your support of our Montessori apps.
