Why do insects delight some kids while frightening other kids? And why is it that insects such as the ladybug appear friendly and approachable while insects such as the cockroach cause people to run away?
Whatever the answer, my free printable Insects Bingo game will help your children learn to identify and name ten different insects all while having fun at the same time.
Note: You’ll find more insect learning printables on my Insect Unit Study page.
Did you know that playing Bingo can help children develop their executive functioning skills? Executive functioning skills are controlled by the frontal cortex of the brain, and they are integral to the development of important skills such as impulse control. (We all want our kids to exhibit better impulse control, right?)
Changing up the rules each time you play Insects Bingo is a great way to give kids’ executive functioning skills a workout. For example, the first time kids need to get a straight line to win. The next time kids need to get the four corners to win. The next time kids need to fill in all squares to win. Mixing it up like this will help kids develop flexibility in their thinking.
