Spider Life Cycle

Preschoolers are fascinated with watching things grow and change. You can help them learn how bugs grow and change with these spider life cycle preschool pages.

They will also help you show the life cycle sequence of spiders. In this printable pack, you’ll find the following spider life cycle worksheets

• Mini- coloring book – Children can color the images on this page. Then, they’ll trace the words at the bottom of each block. When that’s complete, cut out the cards, staple them in the top left corner, and let your child “read” the book back to you. 

• Cut and paste pages – There are two cut and paste pages in this pack. One has kids cutting and pasting pictures in order on the life cycle chart.

The other has kids cutting and pasting words to label the pictures on the life cycle chart. Choose which one works best with your child. 

• Life cycle match – Kids will draw a line from the life cycle picture to its corresponding word.
