Kids love visiting the zoo, seeing all the animals and watching them being fed. Our boys have loved having the opportunity to feed some unique animals, like dolphins. These Zoo animal activities for preschoolers encourage children to learn more about the animals they see at the zoo. There are zoo activities for toddlers as well as zoo theme preschool activities too.
The more difficult zoo animal worksheets can be used with kindergarten and first grade students.

Zoo Activities For Preschoolers
This massive printable pack comes in two versions: One is in color and the other is in black and white for those who have limited ink for their printers. The links for you to download them are at the end of this post.
Included in this massive printable pack you will find a printable story book which can be printed out and stapled together. Children will love to learn to read the story themselves. They can also use this in conjunction with the printable puppets included. In this book, they will learn the names of some of the animals they would see at a zoo. They will also practice their letter formation and learn to spell the animal names while tracing them.
There is an ‘At the Zoo’ page. This page can be printed out multiple times and bound or stapled into a book. Each page can be used for each animal they see at the zoo. If they are not visiting the zoo, they can research different animals they would find at a zoo and complete the activity using what they find.
Activities on this page include:
- Drawing a picture of the animal
- Circling the correct answer – It is a vertebrate, reptile, mammal, marsupial, invertebrate, amphibian, bird, or fish.
- Tick if this animal is a herbivore, carnivore or omnivore
- Tick how the animal moves
- Color in on the map where the animal lives
- And write some interesting facts they have found out about the animal
There are also many zoo animal games, math activities that work on counting and literacy activities that work on letter recognition, letter formation and spelling.
I hope you enjoy the free preschool worksheets! The Do a Dot zoo coloring pages as well as the patterning and size sequencing cards are fun zoo animal activities for toddlers.
