When you give this sea turtle life cycle printable to your preschoolers, they can color the pages and trace the labels before playing the matching game.
Whether you plan to use these worksheets as a part of your life cycle activities or you’re using them as a part of your ocean studies, they’re a great resource to have on hand to teach kids the life cycle of the sea turtle.
This pack includes a life cycle anchor chart in color and in black and white as well as a coloring page for each stage of the life cycle. There are also two pages of matching cards so your kids can play “life cycle memory”.
Sea Turtle Life Cycle Printable
To introduce the sea turtle life cycle to your preschoolers, use the color anchor chart. As you discuss the stages of the life cycle, have your kids point to or color the matching stages on the black and white poster.
The pages of the coloring book highlight each stage of the life cycle. There is a large vocabulary word at the top of each page. Kids can trace the words with their fingers or color them with crayon.
Then, have them color the coloring pages. Coloring is a great way to help children develop fine motor skills while expressing their creativity.
After coloring the page, kids can trace the vocabulary word at the bottom of each page. This is a great time to help kids focus on proper pencil grip and letter formation.
After finishing the coloring pages, your kids can play Life Cycle Memory Match. Print the cards on cardstock and laminate for durability. Cut the cards apart with scissors or a paper cutter.
Turn the cards facedown on the table. Have kids turn over two at a time. If the cards match, they keep the set. If they don’t, they flip them back over and their turn is over. Keep going until all the cards have been matched.
As your kids make matches, see if they can put the cards in order according to the life cycle. Have them check their work against the anchor chart to see if they’ve put the cards in the right order.
