MAMMAL PUZZLE (HORSE)
This material is used to study the body parts of mammals and offers a great many different ways of using it: compose and take apart, (visual and tactile discrimination), learning the scientific names, preparation for writing (tracing of the single parts and of the whole animal) writing and reading (also in combination with the movable alphabet). Moreover, the smaller child starts distinguishing between animals and human beings.
