If you’re visiting the beach this summer, why not learn about the creatures you may see there. These parts of ocean animals worksheets will get your child acquainted with crabs, seahorses and dolphins. And if you love these, you’ll love my other ocean worksheets for kids.
I’m preparing an ocean unit for my son who’s asked to learn more about ocean animals. He did state he didn’t want to do any of that baby stuff that I did with my daughter’s co-op class.
The ocean is one of his favorite topics and he’s already watched so many documentaries about it. He retains so much knowledge from watching, too.
He loves the animals that live in the deep ocean but particularly enjoys all of the carnivores because the herbivores are boring I’m told.

You can have your child write out the answers using the word bank for spelling or they can cut and paste the answers onto the picture. I’ve also provided an answer key for easy correcting.
