This printable insect sorting worksheet is perfect for your preschool insect theme week! Children can use the insect cutouts to sort the bugs by insects characters like wings vs no wings. They can use the included paper cutouts or you can use figurines that you have on hand. Plus find 11 more fun bug activities too.
Preschool Insect Theme
To prepare the activity you just need to print it out on cardstock. Then place the items together and ask your child, “Does a ladybug have wings?” and show her the different parts of the chart. Sometimes children need an example.
I prefer working with the hands on figurines. I find that it adds another form of exploration, plus we love to add these figurines to sensory bins. You could even hide these insects in the sensory bin and make your child ‘catch the bugs’ and then place them on to the sorting sheet. That would be ADORABLE.
We have two insect themed sensory bins here:
