Fun Pets Activities for Kids
If you’re planning a pets unit, you’re sure to find the following activities helpful. For each of the pet animals, I’ve included a craft template AND five worksheets to learn about that animal. If you check out the pictures below, you’ll see a few of the worksheets that are included.
Easy to Prep Craft Templates
The following pet craft templates are really easy to prep. All you need is some basic materials such as acrylic paint, crayons, scissors and glue. A key feature of these templates which I absolutely LOVE is that the cutting lines are thick. This makes it so much easier for kids who are still developing their scissor skills!
For each craft, you can choose from a mix of worksheets such as labeling, writing a description or researching facts. The labeling worksheets help kids to read information text and learn new vocabulary. Kids need to begin by cutting out the labels. Next they need to look at the initial sound on the word and if possible sound it out. Some of the words may be bit advanced for young kids to read on their own, so adult assistance is needed. Once the kids know what the word is they need to paste it next to the correct part.
