Now that we are well into April, have you noticed more insects in your yard and neighborhood? We’ve seen plenty of ants, and my kids are always wanting to feed them since we did an activity several years ago to see what ants like to eat. We’ve also spotted some ladybugs in our rose bushes.
Insects are a great theme for preschoolers and early elementary students to study. That’s why I’m happy to share my latest insect printable: my Insects Sudoku Puzzles!
Note: You’ll find more insect learning printables on my Insect Unit Study page.
Sudoku is a great way to exercise your child’s brain with fun, engaging, puzzles that stimulate critical thinking and cognitive skills.
The goal of Sudoku – at least when played the usual way by adults – is to fill in a 9×9 grid such that each row, column, and 3×3 sub-grid includes one and only one of each digit from 1 to 9.
Depending on the number of blank spots in the Sudoku puzzle, the difficulty can range from quite easy to extremely challenging. (I’m personally a fan of the really challenging puzzles!)
In the Insects Sudoku Puzzles I am sharing today, I have made the game kid-friendly by adapting it to use pictures of insects instead of numbers.
Here is a sneak peak at the four Insects Sudoku puzzles included in the download:
As you can see, I have included one advanced playing board with a 9×9 grid and three basic playing boards that have been shrunk to a 4×4 grid in order to make the game age appropriate for young children.
