Spring is here and all the new blooms are keeping the bees busy collecting pollen and nectar. It’s hard work being a pollinator!
These hard-working insects took a break from pollinating to get kids busy as bees learning and having fun with these bee activity sheets.
Come by our hive to check out some more bee activities your kids will be buzzing to do.
Bee Printable Activity Pages
The activity pages will guide kids through different tasks like shadow matching, navigating a maze, counting, graphing, and more to help them build up some important skills like problem-solving, basic math skills, and fine motor skills.
These bee-themed pages will keep kids engaged and excited to learn. Incorporate these worksheets with any bee or insect-themed study to keep the learning going. Whether you use these sheets at home or in the classroom, they’ll be a hit with the kids.
This set of worksheets is ideal for kids in preschool, pre-K, and kindergarten. They’re easy to get kids started with, since all you have to do is download, print, and go.
In this set of bee activity sheets, you’ll find the following printables:
- Shadow Matching Worksheet
- Bee Maze Worksheet
- Count and Graph Worksheet
- Match the Object Worksheet
Up first is a shadow matching sheet where kids will try to match the colored, detailed image with its matching shadow by examining the shapes and outlines.
This activity helps kids develop visual discrimination skills which will help kids be able to spot the differences in shapes and objects that are similar. This skill is important for young children beginning to learn how to read by being able to recognize the differences in letters.
On the next sheet, kids will guide the bee through the maze to its hive. This activity is great for kids to use their problem-solving skills, fine motor skills, and focus. Completing a maze also helps kids develop spatial visualization by picturing how the bee can get home.
Next is our count and graph page where kids will count the bee-themed objects and then fill in the graph at the bottom of the page with how many of each item there is. Kids are introduced to beginner math with this worksheet by counting and graphing up to 5.
Finally, on the match the object worksheet, kids will draw a line to the matching image on the other side of the page. This is a great activity for kids to increase their memory, concentration, attention to detail, and noticing similarities and differences.
