Preschoolers and kindergartners learn best through hands-on and play-based experiences and these Free Printable Turkey Life Cycle Worksheets are no exception.
Turkey Life Cycle
Egg – Just like other birds, turkeys lay eggs. It truly is amazing how much development takes place within an egg. If you’re interested in learning more, this is an excellent topic to research with your little kids. It takes approximately 28 days for turkey eggs to hatch.
Hatchling – A hatchling is a baby animal that’s just recently hatched from an egg. If you’re interested in learning about other bird life cycles, be sure to check out these Chicken Life Cycle Worksheets too.
Poult – Young turkeys may be referred to as poults or sometimes even chicks. Poults eventually lose their baby feathers or molt.
Turkey – Turkeys reach their full size in approximately 4-5 months and their life span is about 3-5 years. Sometimes we see wild turkeys around here. They’re quite a beautiful sight!
Putting events or ideas in the correct order, which is called sequencing, is an excellent way to teach little learners critical thinking and cause and effect as well as encouraging reading comprehension skills.
