### What’s Included in the Zoo Animals Count and Clip Card Set?

This count and clip card set includes 16 printable cards:

• Four of the cards ask the student to compare, “Which one has less?”
• Four of the cards ask the student to compare, “Which one has more?”
• Eight of the cards ask the student to count to a specific number.

The cards include answers on the back. This allows students to check their own answers and receive immediate feedback.

The Zoo Count and Clip Cards provide a fantastic hands-on counting activity for your students.

### How to Use the Zoo Animals Counting Clip Cards

1. Cut out the cards. Fold on the dotted line to hide the answer (on the back of the card). If desired, glue the strip down.
2. After you assemble the cards, laminate for durability.
3. Show student how to use the clip cards by determining more, less, or the right quantity. Student should place a clip on the card with her answer.
4. Student can turn over the card to check her own work. If she didn’t get it right on the first try, encourage her to count again.

### Extend the Learning with More Math Concepts

Once your student masters the Zoo Animals Count and Clip Cards, try some of these ideas:

• When comparing which zoo has less, ask your student, “How many less animals are there?”
• When comparing which zoo has more, ask your student, “How many more animals are there?
• Ask your student to count all of the zoo animals on the card. “How many zoo animals are there altogether?”
• Go to the zoo. Count the animals. Use a clipboard to keep track. Compare the number of snakes you see with the number of birds, etc.
