This hands-on learning game is a great way for kids to learn about the different types of coverings animals have.

Plus, your child can play the game with another child, racing against a clock to see who finishes sorting their cards first.

How to Play:
- Place the 4 category pictures (fur, feathers, scales, and shell) in a row horizontally.
- Mix up the cards, putting them all in a pile, face-down.
- Have your child draw a card.
- The child then places the card underneath the correct category.
The close-up cards should be matched in the same way.
You can have your child play this game together with another child. Simply give each child two category cards, and see who can finish sorting their cards first. Children on two different levels can play also; one child places the close-ups while the other places the regular pictures.
