Sea Animals Flashcards PDF

Have a wonderful preschool lesson with these Free Sea Animals Flashcards from The Teaching Aunt. 

Finally! We are now on the last installment of our free animal-themed flashcards. 

For the last time, I’d like to recommend that you divide the animal theme lesson into four categories:

  • pet animals
  • farm animals
  • wild animals
  • sea animals

As always, I’ll list below my tried and tested techniques in teaching sea creature lessons.

How To Teach About Sea Animals to Preschool Students:

  1. Open the theme by bringing an aquarium to class. Have the children observe the fish in the tank. Ask about their observations. Get as many responses as possible, then lead the discussion to sea animals. 
  2. Watch a movie about sea creatures. Finding Nemo is a classic! Most if not all students have probably seen the movie, but I’m sure they’ll still enjoy it because they’ll be watching it with their classmates. 
  3. Decorate the classroom with sea creatures flashcards. Or ask the students to draw sea animals and use their work as decorations. 
  4. Work on cute sea animals-themed worksheets that target the following lesson goals: 
    • tracing and writing words
    • counting animals
    • coloring sea animals
    • addition and subtraction problems
  5. And of course, go on a field trip to an aquarium!

Visiting an aquarium with classmates and teachers is so much fun. I’m sure your students will be excited to see the different sea creatures with their friends. 

I recommend that you visit an aquarium at the end of the unit theme so your students would already know the names of the animals.

You can make the field trip more fun by adding a Scavenger Hunt element to it. Print a list of sea creatures and ask the students to cross out the names of the sea animals they spot. 

Pro-Tip: Aside from sea creatures, add other things that are commonly found in the sea, such as seaweed, corals, etc. Or add something which children are not familiar with so they can practice asking questions.

Done with the pro tip! Now let’s go to the free printables!
