Kangaroos are fascinating animals native to Australia. They’re known for their incredible jumping abilities and unique way of carrying their young in a pouch!
Let’s take a trip Down Under and learn more about these amazing marsupials with our kangaroo worksheets. They include three engaging activities to help your preschoolers learn about these amazing jumpers, the letter K, and strengthen essential skills.
Included in this set is a handwriting sheet, a letter maze, and a “label the kangaroo” page. These worksheets will have them enhance their letter recognition, fine motor skills, problem-solving, and more.

In this set of printable worksheets, we’ve included the following:
- K is for Kangaroo handwriting worksheet
- Label the Kangaroo worksheet
- K is for Kangaroo letter maze worksheet
The handwriting worksheet introduces young learners to a new vocabulary word and enhances their handwriting skills. It features the word “kangaroo” along with uppercase and lowercase letter Kk’s in dotted lines for tracing.
As children follow the dotted lines with their pencils, they not only practice letter formation but also reinforce their letter recognition skills. By associating the letter K with the word, kangaroo, kids build early literacy skills.
This activity works on fine motor control, hand-eye coordination, and letter recognition, which sets a strong foundation for future reading and writing success.
Label A Kangaroo Worksheet
Up next is a hands-on activity with our “Label the Kangaroo” worksheet. Kids will cut out the labels provided at the bottom of the page and paste them onto the appropriate parts of the kangaroo illustration.
This activity encourages observation, vocabulary development, and fine motor skills. Kids will learn about the different body parts of a kangaroo, such as its tail, legs, and ears.
It’s an interactive way to boost their knowledge about these remarkable marsupials while fostering creativity and attention to detail.
K Letter Maze
On the final worksheet, kids will navigate from start to finish by following the uppercase and lowercase letter Kk’s. This engaging maze not only reinforces letter recognition but also provides an enjoyable challenge for young minds.
As they trace the path, they’ll be able to improve their problem solving skills and fine motor skills. Let your little explorers hop through this maze and experience the joy of learning through play.
These pages are a great way for your young learners to explore the world of kangaroos while enhancing their essential skills.
