Since we’re studying fruits and vegetables this week in our science unit study, I wanted to include a set of 3-part cards for my younger girls (ages 5 and almost 7).
I’ve only made a few sets of 3-part cards, but I must remember to add these to my printable queue since my girls always enjoy them!
This set of fruit 3-part cards added a fun element to our learning!

Although I was able to find great quality clip art for these fruit cards (finding excellent clip art is usually a challenge!), I decided to use real images of fruits for this printable set.
There are a multitude of ways to use these Fruit 3-part cards:
♥ Use as a traditional matching, Memory-style game
♥ If your child can read, have him match the word to the fruit
♥ Sort the cards by beginning sound or beginning letter
♥ Sort the cards by color
♥ Sort the cards by preference – which ones your kiddos like and which ones they don’t!
♥ Sort the cards into two groups: those fruits they have tried and those they have not
♥ If you have these fruits at home, have your child match the card to the actual fruit
♥ Sort by category: grows on a bush, grows on a vine, grows on a tree, grows on a plant
♥ Use as spelling words for the week
♥ Draw a fruit and use in a sentence
♥ Match the fruits to the pages of the fruit book you’re reading.
We’re using The Fruits We Eat by Gail Gibbons as one of the spines in our Fruits and Vegetables unit study. My kiddos are using the cards as a hide and seek with this book.
They draw a card and find it in the book. Then we read all about the fruit and how it grows. This has been a great activity!
