Zoo Animal Math Worksheets for Preschoolers
Focus on beginning math skills with these zoo math activities for preschoolers. Inside this 20-page pack of printables, you’ll find the following math activities:
Size Sequencing Activities for Preschoolers
This pack includes five sets of zoo-themed size sequencing cards. Kids can use these in a variety of ways. You can have them order the cards from smallest to largest or largest to smallest.
You can have them sort all five sets together according to size – all of the largest animals in one pile, all of the smallest animals in another, etc.
Color by Size
This page is designed to introduce kids to a variety of attribute vocabulary words – longest/shortest, largest/smallest, etc. They’ll follow the directions in each box to color the appropriate animal.
These pages focus on attributes again. On one, kids will color the biggest animal in each set. On the other, they’ll color the smallest.
Order by Size Worksheet for Preschool
Kids will cut out the flamingos at the bottom of the page. This is great for building fine motor skills. Then, they’ll paste the flamingos in the boxes ordering them from smallest to largest.
Count and Color Worksheets
Kids will follow the directions in each box to color the appropriate number of animals.
Count and Clip Cards
I love clip cards! They’re great for focusing on specific skills (counting in this case) while building fine motor skills (pinching the clothespins). With these cards, kids will practice counting sets from 1-12.
Kids will count the animals in each set and trace the number word. Be sure to have kids touch each animal as they count them to work on one-to-one correspondence.
If your kids are ready to work on beginning addition, they’re going to love these clip cards. They’ll work on addition facts from 0-5.
Each card has picture cues for kids who need to visualize the math problem as they work.
These cards will help you introduce and reinforce subtraction facts to 5. If your child needs an extra visual cue, laminate the cards and have them cross off the number of animals “taken away”.
Zoo Activities for Preschoolers
The zoo animals are coming to your house! Enjoy this felt story board set to retell your favorite zoo story or song! Children can use the felt pieces to learn and/or identify their favorite items in the story or make their own pretend play stories. This felt set can be used for a independent play, small group activities, and for speech therapy.
