The Zoo Train Mix-Up
Here comes the train! It is a matching game. The object is to load the suitcases labeled with letters (lower- and uppercase) or Animal pictures that start with the letters into the matching cars of the train within two different (60 seconds and 30 seconds) time limits. See the boxes on the wall with the trains? Click on one of them to determine how fast or slow you want to go! See the boxes of letters under the train boxes? There are 4 of them:
- Animal Picture Letters
- Merged Animal Letters
- Plain lowercase letters
- Plain uppercase letters
Zoophonia and Zeke Zebra give careful directions for this game. They are always ready to help you. Here’s what you do: Select the suitcase with a letter or picture on it that corresponds to the one on the boxcar. To do this, click on the suitcase you wish to move and drag it to the matching boxcar. If children need to hear the sound of the letter again, click on the suitcase and Zoophonia will Signal and sound for them! Remind children to Signal and sound with Zoophonia each time. The boxcars will “light up” when you are done! When you hear the letter’s sound, Signal!
