If your kindergarten or 1st grade students are anything like mine, they LOVE to learn about anything icky or slimy! That means that earthworms are right up their alley. We spent this week learning all about these wiggly creatures. You can too with these FREE earthworm activities!
We read all about earthworms. We learned about how they are different from insects, their unique bodies, and how earthworms are helpful to plants and humans!
All About Earthworms Writing
We made an anchor chart all about what earthworms can, have, are and my students filled out their own mini-versions to help them with their earthworm writing and craft later!
Parts of a Worm Labeling
My students LOVE labeling! We learned that earthworms do not have eyes or ears, but they can still sense light and sound vibrations! My students thought that was amazing!
Earthworm Life Cycle Activities
Once of the big areas we focus on in kindergarten science is life cycles! We read all about the life cycle of worms and my students sequenced the steps of the worm life cycle!
We finished our mini-unit with this fun craft and writing activity to show off all that they’d learned! I had my students cut strips of green paper to make grass, tear a strip of brown paper for the dirt, draw and cut out the worm, and then write a fact or two at the top! They love it!
