Australian Animals Snap is a fun and engaging resource to help your students learn about the animals that are native to Australia.
This is a versatile resource played using the same principles of traditional snap. The game should be played in groups of 4 to 6 and the deck should be dealt out evenly into piles of cards. Each snap card has a picture and information about a native Australian animal. Each player starts with their decks face down and places cards onto the pile without looking at them beforehand. If a player places a card on top of a card that is identical, whoever snaps the pile fastest wins the round and they add the pile of cards to their existing hand. Keep playing until there are no cards left.
The cards can also be used for a variety of other fun games that will also engage your students in learning about Australian animals. They’re also fantastic to have on hand for fast finishers.
Two worksheets have also been included in this resource to help reinforce your students’ knowledge about Australian animals. Simply select the primary or secondary worksheet based on your students’ needs.
