These Animal Research Worksheets are perfect for helping your child learn all about various types of animals.
We’re going to be studying biology this week so you’ll be seeing some fun biology worksheets as I prepare them for my kids to use. If you’re researching a specific animal this is a great way to showcase what your child knows about their animal. I love leaving space for pictures because it doesn’t always have to be done with words. A picture can also tell a lot as well.
I have a son who hates writing and prefers to draw so this is for him. He’s my animal lover and loves reading about ocean animals and wild cats. He thinks he knows everything there is about his favorite animals. We watch a lot of documentaries and we’re continuing with the wildest series on Netflix, after watching Wildest Arctic, we’re now in Wildest Africa.
These worksheets come in handy because we can take what we’ve watched and use them to learn more! And now we have tons more fun printable kindergarten worksheets to share.

If your child has ever wondered where an animal is from or what makes it special, these are the worksheets that can help with that. With sections for learning about their predators to understanding where they live, they’ll love being able to take charge and research and report their findings.

I’m a big believer that when it comes to a series of learning for your kids, animal learning should be at the top of your list. This is because it’s hard to ever get bored with learning about cute animals!
Challenge them to find out a bit more information about animals. They can do this by using the research printables or by reading up about the animals in books. The summer months is a great time to have them study some of their favorite animals, too.
The more that you can find ways for them to explore, the more that they’re going to love researching. And being able to research topics and expand on them is a skill that they’re going to use for their entire life.
