What do you know about reptiles? If you have a child who wants to brush up on reptile knowledge, this free set of reptiles worksheets kids love is going to be a big help. Notebooks are a fantastic way for kids to organize the material they are learning and a great teaching tool. Have your kids print these reptile learning pages and glue them into a bound composition book or three-hole punch for a binder. Learning notebooks are a great way to show off what you are learning too!
Yesterday, I was taking my dog out for some leash practice and we came upon a turtle, trapped inside our fenced in backyard. We have one short section where the fence doesn’t meet the ground, where it came in, but it was all the way across the yard trying to get out on the other side. Of course, I picked it up to bring it in for the boys to study and then release out front where there is no fence keeping it from the creek which is probably the turtle’s water source. My dog thought I was picking up the turtle to give it to her! So funny.
Anyway, we brought our Woodland Box Turtle inside for a little bit and watched it as it got more comfortable and came out of its shell to explore. The boys were fascinated with its neck armor, body armor and all the turtle things, including its smell. Once we released the turtle into the wild, it was the perfect time to talk about the characteristics of reptiles and turtles and organize some of the information we had learned in a notebook, while the boys were still captivated by the subject. I like to use the pages of printables like our reptile worksheets by cutting out the parts and gluing them into a bound composition book or spiral bound notebook — letting the kids organize the information in a way that makes sense to them.
This is a set of reptiles worksheets kids can use to create a project board as well, perhaps for a presentation or for a science fair entry. Print the reptiles worksheet pages in color, mount them on colorful card stock, and put it all together with a foam presentation board or report cover.
These fun pages have printable reptile pictures and a place to record the reptile information your child is learning as they go. We’ve also included pages for early writers to trace some basic information. You can use books from the library, videos, and online encyclopedias to gather more information. In fact, here are a couple of our favorite resources to enjoy.
