Where's my mommy?

Matching baby animals to their mothers in this printable requires your child to use logic and reasoning skills that will also uncover one of the secrets of math.

Learning Stages

It's fun to match the babies to their mommies in this sweet springtime printable. As your child matches them up, point out that there are two "sets" of animals in this picture: babies and mommies. Notice that each animal has a counterpart (there are no animals left over). What does this mean for the number sentence? That the number of babies and mommies should be the same, and that the sum of babies and mommies (the sets) equals the all the animals (the whole).
