Montessori Zoology - Classes of Vertebrates Nomenclature Set for ages 6-9

I am ready to unveil my next set of Nomenclature Cards. Yippee!  I worked on these over the weekend and got finished in a hurry.  I am learning how to do some fun new tricks which are helping me to get better at creating useful images for card materials.

This free downloadable set of zoology nomenclature cards is for the study of the 5 classes of vertebrates: birds, fish, amphibians, mammals, and reptiles.  They are meant for introduction AFTER the children have been exposed to real life members of these classes of vertebrates.  This is a great montessori zoology manual that I highly recommend.

Zoology is fascinating to children.  Heck, it is incredibly fascinating to me.  The first time I ever learned about the alternation of generations in the jellyfish, I was teaching my oldest child and our homeschool group about cnidarians when she was about 8 or 9.  I was simply dumbfounded that something as alien-like as that could exist on our own planet --- and that I never had had the chance to learn anything about it, even in college.  I simply LOVED every opportunity I had to explore the world of living and extinct animals with my own children.  They are some of my fondest memories from my children's homeschooling years.

You can find the Parts of Books blacklines Here.

  • Parts of the Bird - bird, head, beak, eye, body, breast, tail, wing, feet, claws
