Make sure you have software to open a pdf file in your system and download this Activity sheet here.

Step 1 – Get it printed. Would be great if you can get a color prints of it.

Step 2 – Lamination is preferable for its durability in case if you want to re-use the pieces.

Step 3 – As directed in the sheets, you can make the kids do different activities one at a time.

How to do?

Activity 1

  • The cut outs which are to be cut are given in the bottom half of the second sheet. Give the cut outs and the first half of the sheet to the students. [Laminate the sheet to improve its durability.]
  • Students will have to match and paste each Ladybug to its corresponding figure to complete the figure. [In case the sheet is laminated you can use velcro dots].
  • The name of every shape is also written in capitals below it.

Activity 2

  • Trace the shapes – improves fine motor skills & finger movements
  • Color the shapes as given – improves reading & fine motor skills

Activity 3

  • Cut out the individual Clip Cards
  • Lamination is optional
  • Ask kids to identify the shape of the Ladybug shown on the card and clip the right shape.

Activity 4

  • Use the Posters to hand around on the Activity Boards or make & give it away as a booklet.

Activity 5

  • Using the color & B&W cutouts, make your own shape Ladybugs.
