Printable African Animals Dominoes

Dominoes is an easy game that can be used to teach English even to the youngest students. This is why I design printable domino cards to play with kids when strengthening new vocabulary. The game offers a challenge that is easily solved by the majority of children thus leaving them proud of their achievement and experiencing some positive emotions. Every teacher knows that positive emotions in the classroom are extremely good for students’ memory and desire to learn. I also do my best to design bright and colorful domino cards to make English learning experience even better for my precious little students. I usually use the domino game along with the bingo game to gamify my teaching process and make it more effective with young English learners. Such activities bring a lot of fun to my classroom.

Since animals belong to one of the major topics with a large vocabulary to be learned, I have created as many as 162 printable domino cards (including a few for British English variations of some animal names) to help kids memorize animal names through playing individually and in groups. I designed the game in such a way that a teacher could offer students to match animal pictures with their names within certain groups of animals (African animals, Australian animals, polar animals, pets, farm animals, sea animals, forest and jungle animals, birds, insects) as well as for the entire vocabulary I based the printable animal kit on.
