The air is getting warmer and we’ve started noticing flocks of birds flying in a “V” formation around our town. Even Piglet shouts “All those birds, Mama!” when she sees them.
They’re returning here after the winter. Soon we’ll be hearing them sing in the mornings again!
So I thought our next set of printable flashcards should be a set of bird identification flashcards!
These are so simple for a spring science activity. They’re also a wonderful fit for a fall unit, particularly if you’re studying migration.
Read on to see how to get your set. And, for more about our feathered friends, don’t miss our list of beautiful children’s books about birds!
Printable Bird Identification Flashcards
- Printer (with ink)
- Printer paper
- Laminator (if you want the flashcards to last for a while)
In this set of flashcards, you’ll find identification cards for 12 different kinds of birds, including:
- Sea Gull
- And Quail!
Let the kids try guessing which animals match up with the species you see in your neighborhood!
How to Use Printable Bird Identification Flashcards
One of the simplest ways to use these bird species identification cards is to memorize birds by their pictures and then quiz students as a review.
Since one set of the cards has pictures of the birds only, make the picture cards into a “Guess Who?” game!
These would also be wonderful for a spring or fall nature walk!
Use a hole puncher to put a hole in the top left corner of each card and place all of them on a ring.
Then take the flashcards with you as the kids try to see how many species they can spot in your area!
