Me – Some animals are sleeping now. But some animals sleep during the day.
Five minutes elapse. I am almost asleep, thinking Bear is almost asleep too.
Bear – Some aminals sleep day.
Me– Yes, they are called nocturnal animals, Bear. Like bats and owls, and well, I’d have to look the other ones up.
Bear – On compooter.
Me – (chuckling at the fact that my 2 year old knows that we can look stuff up on a computer) Yes.
I found these animal pictures, saved them to my computer and put them in a Word document so they’d be larger. I printed this out.
I took a yellow piece of construction paper and glued a black piece of construction paper over half the yellow one.
Voila! A nocturnal vs diurnal sorting activity.
I would have cut the animal cards apart, but Bear really wanted an “aminal cutting activity.” I was actually very impressed at how well she cut and how she painstakingly lined up all the little cards to glue them.
