Children are not usually exposed to the different kinds of amphibians that live on this earth, and as a result these cards are very interesting for them. Even most adults do not know much about caecilians which is the 3rd order of Amphibians. The 1st being frogs and toads, the 2nd being salamanders and newts.
These cards contain 5 amphibians from 6 different continents. There are no amphibians found on the continent of Antarctica, which is an interesting part of the conversation when using these cards with a group. The 6 continents are symbolized on the cards to facilitate the children in locating them on the puzzle maps or continents globe. Each card also contains a fairly easy sentence for early readers that gives a little bit of information about each amphibian. There is also a header card for sorting by continent.
*Note that Australia has 5 frogs since no other amphibians are found there.
