Create your own baby animal matching game

We made this animal matching game to help practice the indicators for science this quarter.  We have plenty of cartoon animals and their mothers, but this one is realistic and liked a lot better by the students.  After matching them, we ask questions to probe their thinking skills like, "What do you think Elephants eat?" "Where do you think the Hippo lives?"  These kinds of questions make a simple activity more rigorous for the students and extend their learning.
