3-part cards are the perfect way to introduce a new topic to a child, whether it is wildlife or transportation. It not only helps a child work on their vocabulary skills but also on their identification skills.

There are three different cards to this game:

The first is the image card – In this set it shows the illustration of a planet.

Why Laminate?

By laminating the cards they will last for many years. Once your child has completed learning with them then you can pass them onto other families or even schools.

You can also do other activities with the cards. For example my daughter then organised the planets, sun, and moon into size order.
