Product Description

Designed for elementary students who have low vision and CVI, Animal Recipes is the first in a series of products that help students understand the salient features of animals as they build a cow, sheep, horse, goat, pig, goose, and rooster. Salient features are the key “ingredients” that make things unique (i.e.: How do you tell a pig from a cow?). This kit includes a realistic, full-body corresponding plastic toy, translucent 3D puzzle pieces to create animals’ faces, print and tactile overlays that represent the animals’ bodies, and a label for the name of each animal in print and braille. While building the animals, students will learn how images represent real objects, how “pieces” of objects come together to make an entire image, and how to identify animals from one another. For added learning, make the animals on top of the LED Light Box or LED Mini-Lite Box.
