This zoo animals themed educational resource was designed specifically for first graders! You’ll find engaging and skill-based activities for reinforcing reading, writing, and math skills while incorporating the high interest topic of zoo animals to motivate your students in practice or review.

Featuring a variety of no-prep worksheets along with interactive activities like cut-and-paste, making words, write the room, and color by code, this resource makes learning fun and enjoyable for learners. The reading component includes passages with simple comprehension questions, while the writing section offers opportunities for fact writing, creative writing using picture prompts, and directed drawing with sentence writing. The resource also covers important literacy skills such as alphabetical order, prepositions, and counting syllables. There are also math skills like addition, subtraction, measurement, word problems with number lines, and graphing.

This zoo animals themed educational resource offers a range of benefits for both teachers and students. It can be used to increase anticipation and introduce zoo vocabulary prior to a zoo field trip, making the outing even more exciting and educational. It’s also perfect for use during transition times, such as waiting for the bus to go on a field trip or upon return, providing engaging activities to keep students focused and learning. Additionally, the no-prep pages make it easy for substitute planning, ensuring that learning continues even when you can’t be there. Lastly, it’s an ideal resource for end-of-year skill review, offering a fun and educational way to encourage students to stay focused on learning as the summer draws near.

With its diverse range of activities and skill-based approach, our zoo-themed educational resource is sure to be a hit with first graders, making learning enjoyable, meaningful, and memorable.

This resource pairs nicely with my no-prep Zoo Animals Word Searches. If you’re looking for more animal themed resources, your students might also enjoy Animal Habitats with picture card activities or this animal themed Sentence Building resource.
