My kids are fascinated by spiders and nothing gets a kid learning more than curiosity!  While they are interested, give them some academics along with fascinating spider facts! I created these fun spider activities for kindergarteners to do just that! There are facts, Venn diagram, writing craft, science, math, language activities and more!

Also, grab the spider life cycle freebie at the end!

The spider anatomy poster and spider facts sheet teach about spiders and the KWL chart keeps track of what they know and learn.  Students show what they have learned about spiders with the lifecycle, sorting, and labeling activities.  They draw their own spider to expand on their knowledge and write all about it!   I love getting hands-on and comparing spiderwebs to cotton or cotton candy is a great way to get your kids focused and using their senses!

Your kindergartener will build literacy skills while learning about spiders with these activities.   They will sort one and two syllable words and practice the alphabet in upper and lowercase with a weaving spider web. They can also work on preposition by choosing the correct prepositions for each spider scene, and the spell words “spider” and “web.”  Show off thier knowledge and creativity by displaying their spider writing prompt and craftivity!

These spider-themed math activities will make any kindergartener smile!  Students will work on counting and using tally marks, comparing numbers with the spider weighing sheet, and reading a graph and reviewing the data from a spider collage.  Kindergarteners use number and number word recognition with the color by number, counting by twos using a spiderweb, identify the missing numbers, and adding while playing a spider game.
