Ants, who doesn’t love them? They’re the least creepy bugs out there which means they’re my favorite by default next to ladybugs. Get your science on with these adorable ant life cycle worksheets to get your kids acquainted with ants.
My kids love heading outdoors and following these little ants around. They enjoy watching them and trying to find their ant hill. As a homeowner, I like them just as much as anyone outside of the house…but inside? They are a pest and need to be gotten rid of. The kids don’t like this but sorry…ant infestations are not a thing I want to deal with because of their sheer numbers.
Ant Life Cycle Worksheets
One thing about ants that I find interesting? The ant life cycle consists of four stages: the egg, larvae, pupa, and adult. The ant can become a worker (female), male or the queen herself. Pretty cool, right?
These ant life cycle worksheets will not only teach your child about ants, but you may actually learn a bit of information as well! You’re never too old to join in on the learning fun!
Plus, you can literally head out the front door and explore and see tons of ants all over the yard. We’ve done this numerous times and it’s a great way to combine learning, moving our bodies, and fun.
We even add in some counting as well where the kids count up as many ants as they can find in a short period of time. They love the friendly competition and I love that they’re working on their numbers.
Recommended Ant Life Cycle Books for Kids
See how the ants grow with these fun books about their life cycle. Aren’t picture books are so much more fun? (don’t worry, we love to read the words, too!)
These ant books listed below are some of our favorites and they all vary enough from one another to keep them interesting and engaging. We’ve read them all and still go back and read some of these again.
They’re good for referencing and expanding our knowledge more about ants.
