As we head into spring, take some time to teach the life cycle of a bird for kids. This pack includes four hands-on activities for preschoolers.
If you’re looking for life cycle activities to do with your preschoolers this spring, be sure to carve out some time to study birds.
Kids are fascinated by birds nests and cracked egg shells. If you’re lucky enough to sneak a peek at the baby birds before they fly away, it’s an image kids will remember for a long time.
Capitalize on that fascination with this life cycle worksheet pack that is perfect for kids ages 4-6.
Add these free spring printables to your seasonal activities and plans. These worksheets work well in your Letter Bb, bird, or general spring lesson plans.
Life Cycle of a Bird for Kids
You don’t want to miss this mini-pack designed to teach preschoolers about the life cycle of a bird.
There are four worksheets included in this pack that each focus on a different skill.
Bird Life Cycle Puzzles
The first worksheet in this pack contains four self-correcting puzzles. I like to print these puzzles on colored paper before laminating them for durability.
Once the page is laminated, cut out the four puzzles and then cut the puzzles apart.
Have children match the picture with the correct life cycle vocabulary word.
Even if your child can’t read yet, they can complete these puzzles as each one is different.
If your kids need more scissor practice, let them do the cutting. They’ll strengthen visual discrimination skills as they decide which pieces fit together.
Bird Life Cycle Sequencing
Preschoolers can work on sequencing with the “Which is Next?” worksheet.
I print this one on colored paper, too. However, you can print this on white paper if your kids want to color the images.
Preschoolers will cut out the pictures at the bottom of the page. Then, they’ll glue them in the correct box to finish each sequencing strip on the page.
You can make this a reusable activity by laminating the page and adding velcro dots to the sequencing strips and cards.
Life Cycle of a Bird Vocabulary
The next page in this pack has several different learning components. First, kids will see the sequence of the life cycle in the pictures on the left side of the page.
Second, they’ll review the vocabulary words as they read them down the right side of the page.
Third, kids will practice handwriting as they trace each of the vocabulary word on the right side of the page.
Then, work on motor skills as they draw a line to match the picture with the vocabulary word.
You can laminate this page and have kids write with dry erase markers, if you would like to make this reusable.
The final page in this worksheet packet is a maze. Kids will help the bird find her way out of the maze.
This activity is a great way to help kids strengthen logical reasoning skills as they trace a path from beginning to end.
This activity can also be laminated or slipped into a plastic pouch and completed with a dry erase marker.
