Continents & Animals Make-A-Sticker Scenes
My class enjoyed reviewing the seven continents together while putting the stickers on their maps. This activity was a good introduction to mapmaking and animals that live on the continents.

Wish I'd bought twice as many for VBS!
These sticker sheets were the kids' favorite during VBS. All age groups (4K-5th grade) enjoyed the easy color-coded matching to the continents. The stickers were easy to peel for all ages. Two classes asked to have this sticker sheet a second time during VBS week. With most sticker sheets the children rush through and are done in minutes, but with this sheet, the children took their time and really liked putting the animals on the "right" continents.

I purchased these to teach a kindergarten geography lesson. The kids loved them ! Only issue is it shows polar bears as being in Antartica... but they were a huge hit. I thought the pictures themselves were excellent. Maybe a bit hard to get the stickers off the page without ripping them, but overall an excellent purchase.

I got these to put in the goodie bags for my son's safari adventures birthday party. I absolutely love it. Fun colors, back ground is not paper as in the description but thin cardboard. My son had fun making it.

I'm using these as attendance/memory verse device in my kindergarten Sabbath School class, while we study about how God created the world.

Awesome birthday party craft!
These were a huge hit at my daughter's fifth birthday party. Perfect blend of her interests (animals, maps) and it turned out all the kids liked it. The map is thin cardstock, sturdy enough that they didn't get ripped or beat up and the kids got to take them home. The kids were able to manage peeling the stickers just fine. It's an annoyance that the polar bear is there but the map has no north pole and he's intended to go to the South Pole. But this oversight didn't detract from the fun.

This was fun and very colorful. My kids liked it. I really liked that the colors of the continents matched the color background of the animals on the sticker sheet. It made it easier to have everyone follow along.
I didn't think that the globe was big enough though and the animals were a little crowded on the continents.

I used this project to teach continents and animal protection, and they worked beautifully. The colors of the animals are coded with the continents, so even my third graders on IEPs could follow directions. It really cemented the continents home to the students.

Order Early to Inspect
As the previous reviewer mentioned, I also had 2 of the 6 units I ordered, with misaligned diecuts. However after a quick customer service call, they assured me they'd check the next 2 units and get them to me immediately. I trust they will (as they have before). :-)
Other than this glitch, these world scene cutouts and animal sticker sheets are brightly colored, sturdy, educational, and sure to be a lot of fun for my 1st graders. We are learning and putting on a little show about helping endangered animals and I believe every animal (sticker) is actually on the endangered list, so this is a wonderful learning tool for young minds.
One misleading sticker is the polar bear in the purple antartica section...Be sure to tell your kids to put the polar bear sticker in the blue 'ocean/ice" area where the arctic would be, as polar bears' habitat is in the most northern hemisphere.
So...Definitely buy this at a wonderful price!! Just be sure to order early and inspect the sticker diecuts for proper alignment. If you get some units that are incorrect, OTC will take care of it with a quick phone call. ENJOY ! Your kids will love these.
