Who Lives in a Pond?

I love exploring science topics with my preschooler. Today we learned all about ponds and what animals are found in a pond. We did some matching activities, learning new vocabulary and some fun water play.

Vocabulary we practiced:
  1. Pond
  2. Lilly Pad
  3. Dragonfly
  4. Fly
  5. Fish
  6. Turtle
  7. Duck
  8. Frog
  9. On and In ("The duck is in the water, the duck is on the lilly pad")
I set up a "Who lives in a pond" matching activity for him which he really enjoyed.

What you need for this activity is
  1. Printable (can be found at the end of this post)
  2. Animal Figurines (turtle, duck, dragonfly, fly, frog and fish)
  3. Print and laminate
 As he matched each animal I would say "a fish lives in a pond, a turtle lives in a pond so on and so forth."

A book we enjoyed

This was a short and fun activity that my son really enjoyed. I am intentionally doing more activities with him because of his speech delay. He has gained so much more language with each activity we do. I hope you enjoy the free printable :)
