There are 6 Habitats included in this set, with 4 animals for each habitat.

  • Rainforest Habitat: monkey, jaguar, tiger, parrot
  • Ocean Habitat: clownfish, jellyfish, seahorse, shark
  • Desert Habitat: camel, vulture, armadillo, scorpion
  • Woodland Habitat: deer, bear, fox, rabbit
  • Polar Habitat: polar bear, walrus, seal, penguin
  • Wetland Habitat: duck, beaver, fish, frog
I recommend that you laminate the mats as well as the animal pieces, and use velcro dots to stick the pieces.

You can make the mat self-correcting by placing a colored dot on the back of the mat and on the back of each animal piece. For example, all the rainforest animals might have green dots and all the ocean animal might have blue dots, etc. Make sure you put the dots BEFORE laminating.
