I just completed the latest biome resource I have been working on for a while – the Taiga Biome. It’s a fascinating ecosystem for children to explore. This Salmon printable will complement it quite well. You are most welcome to download this resource. You can use these cards and posters with clear true-to-life images and photographs to create hands-on science activities for your students. Children will learn to name stages of the salmon life cycle, and parts of a salmon, practice sequencing skills and work to improve their concentration and fine motor skills. This resource will be useful if you plan to explore fish and other types of vertebrates in your Montessori and early childhood classroom.
This resource contains a Salmon life cycle poster, worksheet, 3 part cards, and Parts of a Salmon printables.
Here is what’s included:
- Salmon life cycle poster
- Salmon life cycle coloring, cutting, and pasting worksheet
- Salmon life cycle tracing strips
- Salmon life cycle 3 part cards
- Parts of a Salmon poster
- Parts of a Salmon poster minus labels
- Parts of a Salmon labels
- Parts of a Salmon tracing

How to Use:
Parts of a salmon– Gather books on salmon 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 in 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 salmon’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 cards 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.
