Feeding Pets Task

This is a fun task that introduces taking care of pets. I made some visual boards with several pictures of a dog and cat, six animals to each board. I then found a visual of a feeding bowl and copy/pasted them in front of the animals. After printing the sheets I glued them to card stock making a slit in the printed visuals of the food bowls. This is so the food can be placed in the bowls like shown in the photo below. Instead of just placing the sardines and bones in the bowl by the animals at random, I provide a dice and the student rolls to see how many pieces of each food item the animal gets.

This is a task that the students enjoy and it helps with their fine motor and math skills as well. They use tweezers to place the food in the bowls.
