Skills to Practice
- Comparing and Contrasting
- Bird Identification
- Fine Motor Skills
- Making Observations
I spy worksheets are a fun way to practice basic math skills. From counting to comparing different amounts. As your child works on each worksheet you can count how many of each bird along with talking about which bird species is shown the least or the greatest number of times.
Your child can talk about the similarities and differences between the different kinds of birds on the sheet. Comparing and contrasting the shape of the wings, beak, and even the pattern on the feathers.
- Use colored pencils, markers, or crayons to color in each bird
- Find out the name of each bird species (Hint: each printable features real birds!)
- Very young children can circle each bird a different color instead of coloring in the entire picture
I love how you can pair these I spy sheets with other birding activities. From bird watching, recording in a bird journal, or even just reading a few books about birds.
