The ocean is always fun to learn about, no matter the season, but it’s always especially fun as the weather gets warmer. After experimenting with our ocean zones and animals activity, we carried the fun over to our math centers and practiced counting sets to 12 with these fun ocean animal count and clip cards!
Ocean Animal Count and Clip Cards
To get these fun cards ready, I quickly printed them out and laminated them. After cutting them apart, I placed them in a small bin with some clothespins to have ready for a quick and simple math center!
I usually play the game first with my kids before letting them give it a go independently, but since we have also been playing with our fish count and clip cards, they knew exactly what to do with these!
They grabbed up a card, counted the ocean animals (we also named them too, which is great practice if you are learning about ocean animals in general) and then clipped the matching number.
You could make these self-correcting by writing the number on the back of the cards. If you do this, print on cardstock though so that they aren’t see-through!
