Garden Critters Preschool Weekly Plan

Garden Critters Preschool weekly plan and activities

Garden critters, worms, snails, ladybugs, bees, caterpillars and butterflies are the focus of these preschool lesson plans and activities. Learn all about the critters that wiggle their way through the dirt and buzz around the garden! Together with your children, you will explore nature and the environment that surrounds us. Preschool and kindergarten children will participate in hands-on science lessons, garden critter investigations and activities, and arts and crafts projects. They also will have some creepy crawly fun with our engaging games and preschool activities, all while gaining a deeper appreciation for these little creatures. 

Who’s that Garden Critter? Activities and Crafts (Lesson plans, activities, and printables available inside our KidsSoup Resource Library)

The book "Who's that Garden Critter" introduces preschool children to an array of garden critters. Afterwards they play fun games and activities to identify the names of different garden critters, practicing counting with clip cards and manipulatives, and go on a garden critter hunt indoors and outdoors.
