Magnifying Glass Match Up – Free Printable

I got a magnifying glass last year but my kids were not ready for it then. We used it once during Fall to view the details on the fall leaves and then totally forgot about it.  This year we plan to use it more. 

I set up this Match Up activity for my LOs to understand the use of a magnifying glass. It also helps learn basic math concepts like comparison of size and matching, strengthen their vocabulary by naming the objects on the game board. 👍

What you need

  • These printouts – 1 & 2 – free download
  • Magnifying glass – ours was from dollar store

How to

  • Print out the cards and laminate.
  • Cut out the miniature pictures.
  • Use the large pictures as game board – do not cut them.
  • Let your LOs use the magnifying glass to view the miniature pictures and match them up to the large pictures on the game board.

Miss A (3 yrs) liked this activity a lot. She kept doing it over and over again. The construction vehicles was a new lesson for her. She learnt the names of construction vehicles and tried to match the ones we have at home to the pictures. We will be doing a unit on construction vehicles soon. 😀
