This week we are giving you something rather eye-catching and fabulous; a free animal habitats sorting game for the kids.
This is a really simple idea for you; we have created some pictures of a few habitats that your kids are likely to have come across. We have nine of them in total:
- Rainforest, and
Alongside these are some animals that you might find in each of these locations. Including:
- Orang-u-Tan, and
- Tree frog.
There are six animals per habitat – that’s a lot of animals! All your children need to do is cut out the animals, or you can do this of course, and mix them all up and add them to the right habitats.
Make sure you take note of which animals belongs in which habitat before you cut them out; all the info is on the sheets.
This is a great way to help kids understand about what animals live where. Perhaps you can chat about what makes them well adapted for the habitats that they do live in too? From the bear, to the Octopus, they are all well suited to where they live, and it is great for our children to understand a little science behind the animal’s home.
To download these sheets, just click on the image below.
If you would like other free resources from the site, then do check out some of the other recent learning tools that we have produced for you.
- Number tracing to help with handwriting,
- We also have shape tracing to help here too,
- A science experiment with Jelly Babies to help kids understand waves,
- A bit of addition and subtraction worksheet fun, and
- Finally, we recently published some Learning to tell the time worksheets to help kids with what is a really important skill.
There is lots to do here, but if you are after some more activities around habitats, rather than just general learning. Do please pop along to some of these great resources as well as printing out our animal habitats sorting game:
- The Gift of Curiosity has a great resource to help us learn about ant habitats,
- Natural Beach Living has some perfect habitat activities for preschoolers,
- The Imagination Tree has created some animal habitat mini sensory tubs,
- No Time for Flash Cards has more habitat sorting for you, and
- True Aim Education is creating animal habitat murals!
Lots of exciting activities around what is a truly fascinating STEM topic for both the young and old alike. Given the focus generally on being more aware of what our environment and animals need to survive, and how we can affect that, this is a great activity to start those discussions.
We hope that you have found this a useful resource, and do pop along and follow us over on Pinterest, so you can see all the other great resources that we produce, and pin.
We also produce a weekly newsletter with all our free printables included for you – free as always. We hope that you will subscribe to this too.
Thanks for coming.
