Description

These Geoboards Animal Task Cards make an engaging and easy-to-prep center! This set supports your teaching of geometry in the classroom by allowing students to build two-dimensional shapes on geoboards. It is also a great way for students to compare and talk about the features of various animals. Perfect for morning tubs, early finishers, choice time, and learning centers, these geoboards activities support the growth of fine motor skills and spatial reasoning.
 
 
This set is included in a money-saving geoboards bundle!
 
 

What’s Included in This Geoboard Task Cards Set?

This set includes 30 animal design task cards for students to replicate on their geoboards. I have also included a blank geoboard task card for you to draw your own designs. These cards feature a 5×5 peg geoboard and are best used with a variety of sizes of rubber bands. When setting up this center in my own classroom, I usually include some very small rubber bands that are meant for hair or for a “Rainbow Loom,” along with traditional rubber bands.

All cards are included in black and white in addition to color.

The task cards can be used alone as a springboard for creation. I have also included recording sheets and a planning sheet for teachers who want to incorporate an accountability element into their center.

The animal designs included are:

turtle, mouse, giraffe, sheep, duck, bear, cow, lion, cat, chicken, frog, horse, monkey, snake, squirrel, rabbit, dog, deer, owl, ostrich, flying bird, fox, penguin, elephant, flamingo, alligator, bat, shark, tiger, and turkey

 

How Can I Use These Task Cards With My Class?

These geoboard task cards are a natural addition to math centers during your geometry unit. The animal theme also fits in with some science units (or a zoo theme!). They can also be used year-round as a morning tub, early finisher activity, or even during indoor recess! These cards will bring new life to your classroom geoboards.

Encourage your students to think beyond the design templates on these cards. After they have mastered transferring a design onto their geoboard, they may become spurred to create their own pictures. This is a great way for young students to begin thinking about the shapes in their environment!
