From a young age, children are drawn to animals, especially those that have special eating habits, habitats, and characteristics such as flying or swimming. According to researchers, this phenomenon might be caused by biological instincts that all humans have to take care of small and vulnerable creatures.
As parents, it's beneficial to take advantage of kids' interest towards animals names and sounds. Teaching children more about animals can improve their emotional development, widen their cultural knowledge, and help them have more positive classroom relationships. Additionally, kids who love animals, in general, are proven to create better relationships with friends and family and be more loving towards living things in nature such as plants and wildlife.
There are several ways to teach kids animal names, from games and fun activities at home to regular visits to the zoo. Here you'll find a selection of activities created for helping kids learn about animals.
