So many animals! This beautifully illustrated book introduces the concept of grouping animals into classes, including birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians mammals, insects and arachnids, including the important ways that animals in these classes are alike. Children also learn that animals can be warm-blooded or cold-blooded and vertebrate or invertebrate. A set of 93 playing cards are included. These beautifully illustrated, colorful cards are a great addition to the Animal Kingdom book. Each of the cards features a gorgeous illustration of an animal on one side of the glossy 5 by 6 card, and the reverse side features fun facts such as the animal's class, whether it is vertebrate or invertebrate and warm-blooded or cold-blooded. Students can use the Animal Kingdom Cards to learn more about each animal, and they can also be used to play games, or as a jumping off point for art projects!
