How to Use:

Parts of a hummingbird – Gather books on hummingbirds 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!

Introduce 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 hummingbird’s body.

Print and cut student booklet pages, staple to make a book. Invite the child to color and label each part or dictate naming each part for you to write it down.

‘H is for hummingbird’ worksheet and prewriting exercise – print on cardstock and laminate. Supply an erasable pen. Invite the child to trace the letter ‘h’ and exercise lines. Alternatively, print pages on regular printing paper and slide them into plastic pockets.

Hummingbird mirror match-up cards -Print on cardstock and cut cards. Separate cards on two different piles. Mark the back of each pair with the matching color dots if you would like the child to do a shelf-check after he or she completed the task.

The child would need to flip each pair of cards on the other side and check if the colors on each set are matching. (There are 10 pairs).

Have a portable mirror available for children with this activity. Demonstrate the activity by placing a mirror on the right parallel to the card.

Place all the cards from the second pile in a row below. Invite the child to find the corresponding card from the second pile and match it to the corresponding card.

Coloring pages – Younger children may enjoy painting images with watercolor paints making large strokes. Children who enjoy coloring detailed illustrations will have fun choosing a coloring page that appeals to them the most. To color, use colored pens, markers, pastels, pencils, or crayons.
