September 22nd is World Rhino Day!
There are many ways to celebrate this awesome animal. Why not play with your kids (or older students) a matching game “I Know a Rhino!” and teach them a bit about rhinos?
Here are the complete instructions.
- Print the .pdf below (two pages), if possible on card stock. Make sure students can’t see through the back of them. Laminate if possible.
- Two squares in the handouts combine to form a complete sentence about rhinos. You have 18 squares that make 9 sentences. And you have two rhino head pictures.
- Make one bundle of cards for each group of students (4-6).
- Spread out the cards face down.
- Each player turns over two cards. The goal is to match cards to make a correct sentence about rhinos. Sometimes the cards don’t match.
- Turn them over again. It’s important to remember where each card is and what it says. It’s the next player’s turn.
- If it’s a match, the player gets to remove those cards to his/her pile.
- Continue to take turns, trying for matches.
- When someone turns over the Rhino Head, the game is over!
- Count who has the most cards. That’s the winner.
Why end the game so suddenly? It will make students want to play more than once.
