These zoo animal worksheets are a fun way to get your preschoolers and pre k children to work on a variety of topics!
Every child loves the zoo, so we decided to make these printables with cute and fun zoo animals.
Your child will work on topics like letter recognition, counting, memory, patterns, simple addition, handwriting and much more!
We tend to include these simple letter mazes in our worksheet bundles because kids love playing with them!
All they need to do is begin at start and follow the designated letter through the maze to get to the finish box!
You can print them out for one time use and have them color the boxes in or you can laminate them and use markers like pom poms, beans, cereal or anything else small enough to fit inside the box.
Zoo Animal Flashcards
These cute zoo flashcards can be used in a variety of ways!
We suggest laminating them before first use so they can be used over and over again. Print two sets out and use as a simple matching game for your child.
You can also find lots of other engaging ways to use flashcards with kids, here.
Letter Recognition Worksheets
We also included these zoo animal letter recognition worksheets. There are seven worksheets that cover the letters E, L, M, O, P, T and Z.
On the left side of the page, kids need to find the designated letter in the boxes. They can use do a dot markers to dab each of the letters they find.
On the right side of the page, kids will practice making uppercase and lowercase letters. There is one line that has dotted letters for them to trace and then the line below is empty for children to write in the letter by themselves.
Free Printable Number Strip Puzzles
These number strip puzzles are a fun way for kids to build a puzzle and work on counting skills. We suggest laminating them first, then cutting the pieces.
If you want to turn this worksheet set into a 3 ring binder set, we suggest using adhesive velcro on the back of each strip. Then laminate an empty sheet of white paper and place the matching adhesive velcro on that blank page.
Silhouette Matching Worksheets
This worksheet is great for kids to practice visual discrimination. We’ve included two different styles.
The first worksheet has both the silhouettes and the matches on one page. Simply cut out the dashed boxes at the bottom and have your child paste them onto the correct boxes.
The second worksheet is a full page and works easier when you’re creating a 3 ring busy binder. Laminate both pages, then add the adhesive velcro dots to the back of the animal and the top of the silhouette for kids.
These are a lot of fun!

These might be our favorite part of the bundle because these worksheets are colorful and feel more like a game than worksheets!
