Eat these right up! Children love to play matching games with their favorite foods. Each image shows the fruit's exterior and interior to display the reason it is the type of fruit it is. For example, drupes are simple fruits (like peaches and coconuts) with stones that encapsulate a single seed. And YES, the children are very interested in these botanical details! So read up using the detailed description that comes with the packet and prepare for some killer conversations with your children.
- Matching format includes two sets of identical photos with no text (which can distract the pre-reader); each set of 12 cards has a red or blue dot on the back (to make it easy to sort them out)
- Features 12 types of fruit that children often eat (see photo for list); 24 cards total
- Rounded corners (no pricked fingers or dog-eared cards)
- Comes in a sturdy, clear reclosable bag for storage
