Montessori-Inspired DINOSAUR SKULLS Matching Cards

Learn about long gone dinosaurs as you explore and play with Safari Ltd Dinosaur Skulls toob.  Free printable matching cards for the toob.

I recently purchased the Safari Ltd Dinosaur Skulls Toob.  When I finally opened it, I panicked a bit, because the toob didn't have a informational card, and I don't know dinosaurs at all.  I pulled the contents card from the Safari Ltd website and began slowing creating these cards.  Each "skull" has two matching cards, a picture of an actual skull and a picture of the completed skeleton.  When the student becomes proficient at naming and matching all the animals, the cards can be made into Montessori-Inspired 3-part ones.  The pictures from the printable came from Wikimedia Commons.

There are SO many great books about fossils that you have to check out!  Click on the colored text below to read more about each one.  A collection of them would be great for your classroom when studying dinosaur skulls.



Update 07-01-18
This is my MOST popular 3-part card printable!  I redid the printable to update is and make it more uniform with all of my other matching cards.  I also added some new images just right for Pinterest, so be sure to pin this post to share with your friends and make it easier to find later.

After you've put in your email address into the box, check your inbox for the confirmation email.  Open the email and click on the button to confirm your subscription.  You'll get a second email with a link to download the printable.  Download the PDF from the protected page.  Print the first two pages twice and laminate them for long-term use.  Then, cut out all the cards and separate them by sets.  Leave one set of cards exactly as they are- with the picture and label attached.  With the second set of cards, cut the label off the pictures to make two piece.  The card with a picture and label, the card with just a picture, and the card with the label now make the three parts of the traditional Montessori 3-part cards.  They can also match the Safari Ltd Dinosaur Skulls toob animals to the picture cards or label the figurines with the cards.  The child can also spell out the words with a movable alphabet like printable cards or shaped letters.




You can also chose not to separate the picture from the label to make a set of cards for a classic memory match.  You can your child can take turns choosing two cards and seeing if they're a match.  If they are a pair, then that player gets to keep them.  If they're not a match, the player must turn them over and the other player gets a turn.

You may also want to print just one copy of the cards and allow your child to match the Safari Ltd Dinosaur Skulls toob to the pictures.  Together, you can talk about the animal names, where they live, and sort them by type.  The figurines are great in messy play, sensory bins, and more!  My kids love to play with them, especially outside.
