After all, little kids learn best through play and there are so many play-based learning ideas when it comes to life cycles.
These life cycle printable packs are an easy no-prep way to practice important early learning skills including problem-solving and fine motor skills with your little learners.
Life Cycle Sequencing
Sequencing is another important skill that your preschoolers and kindergartners can learn using these free printable spider life cycle worksheets.
Learning about the spider life cycle couldn’t be more perfect at this time of the year. So many people associate spiders with Halloween and these life cycle worksheets are the perfect resource for all of your fall science themes.
Basically, sequencing is the ability to order events and ideas in a logical way and it’s super important for reading comprehension and storytelling skills.
Sequencing helps little kids to recognize patterns and make sense of the world around them.
Spider Life Cycle
- Eggs – Like lots of other animals, spiders lay eggs. The number of eggs varies by species and some spiders lay just a few while others lays hundreds.
- Egg Sac – Mama spiders protect their eggs by covering them in silk and creating a sac, which she hangs somewhere safe until the eggs hatch.
- Spiderlings – Baby spiders! A spiderling is a young, immature spider. We did a fun Halloween Sensory Bin last year with itty-bitty spiders.
- Spider – Did you know that spiders are arachnids? They have eight legs while insects have six. I’ve always been fascinated by these unique creatures.
Spider Crafts & Activities
Your kiddos can draw the life cycle of the spider using their nature journals and colored pencils. After that, you can use life cycle figurines to make a quick & easy sensory bin. Are you looking for a spider craft too? Use paper plates, googly eyes, and cardstock strips to make adorable spiders that you can then hang up in your homeschool or classroom.
Free Printable Spider Life Cycle Worksheets
There are ten worksheets included in this pack. You’ll receive Life Cycle Sequencing, Life Cycle Matching, and Life Cycle Cut & Paste. Each of those worksheets has an answer key. There are also spider tracing worksheets included as well.
I created these Spider Life Cycle Printable Worksheets to go along with our kindergarten science. This set includes:
- 1 color poster that can be printed to use in your science center
- 3 printable worksheets (matching, sequencing, cut & paste) with answer keys
- 6 pages of printables to create a life cycle book for each student
We used these activities as part of a week-long unit study.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
I hope you enjoy using these life cycle printable worksheets with your little kids as much as I enjoyed creating them with mine.
