I made these animal cards following a lesson about wild animals. I made groups of 4/5 children and gave a set of cards to each group. Each group had also a happy and a sad smile made of cardboard. Each person in the group should pick the happy smile and an animal that he/she likes and make a sentence like this, for example: "I like lions.". All students in the group do this with an animal they like. Afterwards they repeat the process, but this time with the sad smile and picking up an animal they DON'T like. For example: "I don't like frogs".
If the students aren't familiar with the plural forms yet, I help them, writing the plural form on the back of the cards. You can also write the target sentences on the blackboard, drawing a happy and a sad smile to become clearer.
This set of cards has not only wild animals, but also pets and farm animals.
