We’re joining up with the 2nd Grade Blogging Team again this week to share a fun and easy way to learn about nocturnal animals: a Nocturnal and Diurnal Animals Sorting Activity!
I remember learning about nocturnal animals when I was a kid, but we didn’t talk much about diurnal animals (at least not using the term “diurnal”). So in case this term is fairly new to you as a parent, “diurnal” simply means that they are active during the day like you and me!
Read on to see how to get our Nocturnal and Diurnal Animals printable pack! And don’t forget to check out all of our homeschooling printables while you’re here!

At the back are four sorting sheets for kids to separate the nocturnal animals from the diurnal animals. Plus, there’s an answer key included!
