Winter is rapidly approaching and it seems like lots of parents and educators are getting ready for the cold season. So, we thought we’d share a new set of free printable flashcards today – Arctic Animal flash cards!
I love learning about the Arctic with the kids. The animals that live there are so varied (and adorable). Plus, there are all kinds of fascinating behaviors to study: from penguins that huddle together to keep warm to Arctic hares that lighten in color as they age for an amazing camouflage.

This flash card pack includes eight different Arctic animals, including:
- Sea Lion
- Arctic Hare
- Arctic Fox
- Arctic Wolf
- Orca Whale
- Polar Bear
- and Beluga Whale!
One set includes both the animals and their names, while another features only the animals. Kids can match them up or even cut them out to make a collage of winter scenes.
We used them to play a matching game with our preschooler. She’d look for the animal name card and match it with the animal picture card. Pretty soon she was naming all the Arctic animals on her own!
