This farm-themed activity is a great way to get your students to describe animals with specificity. They begin with barn placemats and then take turns “starting their farms” by requesting animals based on their features. The differences in the animals are based on the colors of their body parts, such as turkeys with different colored feathers, beaks, and feet. This makes the difficulty level easier than an activity with variances in size, shape, and/or missing features.
You can also use this as a receptive language activity by describing an animal and having students point to the corresponding animal.
This printable includes:
- 6 color pictures for each of the animals (chickens, rabbits, cats, turkeys, cows, and horses)
- barn pictures
