Rainbow Narwhal Color Board Game for Preschoolers

I have always been fascinated with narwhals as they really look like mystical creatures. The book series written by Ben Clanton about Jelly and Narwhal tells stories of two best friends and their adventures in the ocean. I know many preschool and kindergarten classes that have enjoyed these two unlikely friends, a jellyfish and a cute narwhal. We have another exciting free game for preschoolers that will help them recognize colors and celebrate this special swimming friend.

Learning About Colors with Preschoolers:

ASKING STUDENTS TO IDENTIFY COLORS IS AN IMPORTANT STEP IN USING OBSERVATIONAL SKILLS. STUDENTS CAN ANSWER QUESTIONS LIKE:

What objects or pictures around the room have the color red on them? What color is your shirt? Are all shades of blue the same?

Learning about colors helps children develop visual perception and use observational words to describe something.

Colors can easily be taught in English and a child’s home language.

The colored narwhals included in this board game include blue, orange, pink, green, and yellow.

Have children play this game as a small group or with another child or adult. This could be the perfect board game to add to the science or art center.

In addition to learning about color activities for preschool here are additional ideas to teach about using the Rainbow Color Narwhal Board Game:

  • Where do narwhals live?
  • What do narwhals eat?
  • What color do you get when you mix yellow and blue?
  • What other type of animals/bugs have a tusk similar to a narwhal?
