What pets are feed, walked, or groomed? Izak, who lives in Lapland, takes care of a reindeer! Match animals with owners and their responsibilities by making and playing a matching game!
Have students read books such as Izak of Lapland by Maya Angelou to learn more about people who care for animals. Students should use their imagination to interview the characters in each book, or conduct interviews with people they know. Use Crayola Colored Pencils to record information about animals and their caregivers: where they live, what they do all day, how much space and time the animal needs and the caregiver has.
Students create matchmaker cards and envelopes. With Crayola Scissors, cut a card for each animal. Fold the construction paper into a card. Use Crayola Colored Pencils to draw the animal on the front. Write a colorful list of responsibilities for caring for this animal on the inside.
Students design an envelope for each caregiver. Draw the character on the back of the envelope. On the front write information about a caregiver that could help match an animal with that person.
Students build a colored-pencil easel. Gather six same-length colored pencils (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet) and four rubber bands. Ask a partner to help. Hold the red, orange, and yellow pencils together with the erasers lined up. Wrap a rubber band around them near the eraser. Hold the green, blue, and yellow pencils so the tips line up. Wrap a rubber band near the tips. Hold the violet pencil with the blue pencil. Pull the red pencil tip down to meet the violet and blue pencil erasers. Wrap a rubber band around these three pencils. Pull the orange, green, and violet pencils together. Wrap a rubber band around them to complete the pyramid pencil easel.
Students display the cards on easels. Shuffle all of the envelopes. Each classmate takes one envelope. Match the caregivers on the envelopes with the animals profiled on the cards. Students can join together as a team to make the best matches.
Students can take the game home to play with their family. Talk about responsibility and the benefits of sharing tasks with others. Discuss pet adoption and why it's important to match animals with suitable owners.
