How to Use:

Parts of a turtle – Gather books on turtles for children to explore. Print the posters and label cards on cardstock and laminate. Cut individual label cards. Attach clear velcro to the poster without labels and label cards. Introduce the poster – name all parts of the turtle 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 turtle’s body. Print and cut student booklet pages, staple to make a book. Invite the child to color and label each part.

Coloring pages – print on printing paper. Invite the students to color using pastels, crayons, colored pencils, or watercolors.

T is for turtle worksheet and prewriting exercise – print on cardstock and laminate. Supply an erasable marker. Invite the child to trace the letter t and exercise lines.

Turtle match-up cards – print on cardstock, cut cards, and then cut each in half. Lay one pile on the table and cards from the second pile below. Invite the child to take one card from the top of the pile and find its half.
