Preschool animal-themed notice boards teach small children about different types of animals that pique their curiosity. Decorate a board with a specific animal or group of animals in mind. You can focus on local barn yard animals or exotic species from across the world. Encourage the children to get involved in the decorating process.

Farm Animals

Feature farm animals on a notice board for your preschool students to enjoy. Use red poster board as the background and feature objects that you might see on a farm such as a white picket fence, wheelbarrow or chicken coop. Place various farm animals on the board such as a cow, baby chicken, duck, horse and sheep. Make your own paper farm animals or feature enlarged photos of animals. Spell out the sound that each animal makes and place it beside the animal. The kids will enjoy making animal sounds as they look at the board. Place a title at the top of the board that says "Farm Animals" or "Farm Animal Sounds." Spell out "moo" for a cow and "baa" for a sheep. This theme really relates to preschool children because they are learning about animals and the sounds they make.

African Animal Facts

Feature a notice board about African animal facts. Decorate the board with three or more African animals such as a zebra, giraffe, lions, monkeys or hippos. You can make your own paper African animals or feature enlarged photos of each type of animal. Write one or two simple facts that preschoolers can digest underneath the pictures of the animal. Some preschoolers can read while others are only able to enjoy the photos of the animal, unless you read to them. Examples of simple facts: Giraffes have one baby every 15 months. Adult giraffes are 11 to 18 feet tall.

Place the name of each animal above the pictures. You can also feature the children's African animal art work on the notice board as well, depending on the total size of the board. Zebra or other animal prints work well for a background, but you can use solid coloured backgrounds if you like. Cut out triangle shaped blades of green grass from construction paper to place at the bottom border of the board.

Create a pet notice board that highlights the preschoolers' pets and why they love their furry friends. Ask the children to bring in photos of their pets to place on the board. These photos can include any type of pet, such as kittens, dogs, birds and fish. If a child doesn't have a pet, he can draw a picture of his favourite animal. Use baby-blue poster board for the background so that the photos stand out. Place black paw prints around the border of the board. Choose a title to feature at the top of the notice board that says "Wall of Pets" or something along those lines.
