Our Alphabet Packet has had a huge update! It is currently FREE to download!
This 50-page packet has a number of alphabet worksheets and activities for helping your preschooler to recognize, read, and write letters of the alphabet. This fun packet includes:

Use the colorful alphabet cards for scavenger hunts and matching games. Match the upper and lower case letter and/or match the letter/s with the picture that starts with this letter… from ant and bat to yarn and zebra!

Then we regularly brought out the vertebrate-invertebrate sorting cards (which are included in our Animal Packet). The kids would separate these into the right categories. (First, working on vertebrates and invertebrates… then moving on to the 5 animal groups).
Once the kids were a bit older (age 5 to 8 or so), we began to talk about the different animal characteristics. We also spent time talking about the different invertebrate groups. This packet has a number of pages on animal body coverings (feathers, fur, scales and skin). Plus, we did activities about domesticate vs. wild animals, animals tracks and more. You can find more about our Animal Packet here:
And another activity we did was talking about Animals around the World.
Here are a couple of science units we did when the kids were younger:
