Montessori Homeschooling: Zoology Cards

Zoology cards are part of the biology section of the Montessori Primary and Junior classes.

For everyone who is using Montessori for homeschooling or making DIY Montessori material, here is a great link for creating the zoology cards.

The site covers "natural history and behavior, images, and range maps for mammals in the order Carnivora, which includes the families of Ailuridae (red panda), Canidae (dogs), Eupleridae (Malagasy carnivores), Felidae (cats), Herpestidae (mongooses), Hyaenidae (hyenas), Mustelidae (weasels), Mephitidae (skunks and stink badgers), Nandiniidae (African palm civet), Procyonidae (raccoons), Ursidae (bears), and Viverridae (civets)." With the Mustelidae still pending completion.

Fantastic detailed information and links to excellent photos, the site is also great for research for children around the age of six and up.
