Animal names in French: sticker matching activity for kids

animal names in french

There are many ways to teach your child animal names in French. When we visited a sunflower farm last summer, our daughter loved watching the hardworking bees as they flew from flower to flower. In the fall, when we visited a pumpkin patch, she saw a multitude of farm animals that live on the farm. In the winter, she enjoyed walks to the duck pond and is currently spending her mornings watching birds feeding outside our window. She also enjoys discovering animals through books and TV shows and playing with her animal figures.
