Bat Activities Montessori Printable

Bats are amazing creatures – the only mammals who are capable of flying. They give birth to a single pup. When pups are little, they cling to their moms for protection and to feed. Soon after, moms start leaving their young for a short period of time to forage for food.

At around 3 weeks old, the adolescents grow their teeth. Now they are able to fly on their own and find their food. Visit the resource library to download the pack with Bat Life Cycle and Parts of the Bat printables.

How to Use:

Parts of a bat – Gather books on bats for children to explore. Print posters and label cards on cardstock and laminate. Cut individual label cards.

Attach clear velcro to the poster without labels and label cards. Velco will come especially handy if you decide to take your work outdoors. Having an additional challenge for little fingers is always welcomed when working with young children!

Present the poster – name all parts and invite the students to share their thoughts on the various functions of each part. Then read each label and invite the student to match it to the corresponding part of the bat’s body.

Life Cycle poster – print on cardstock and laminate. Present all stages of the life cycle. Invite the children to retell them or tell their own story that features all the stages.

3- part cards – Print on cardstock and laminate if you wish to preserve colors and card quality for future use. Place picture cards in a column and invite the children to match the picture to the picture and the word to the word.

Life cycle line art – supply scissors, glue, and coloring pencils. Invite the student to color and cut cards and glue them into the correct sequence.

Tracing and coloring worksheets – print on cardstock and laminate. Supply an erasable pen. Invite the child to trace the words and color corresponding images. Alternatively, print pages on regular printing paper and slide them into plastic pockets.
