silly animal puzzles for prek and kindergarten age kids to learn about animals and their habitats in science

My kids just giggled and giggled at the silly animal puzzles they created like the goat bird and the half chameleon and half spider animals.

Make sure you have some scientific conversations while kids are making animals by asking some of these questions:

  • would the goat bird have trouble swimming with his horns?
  • how would the piranha turtle swim?
  • what about the owl sea lion – would it fly or swim?
  • where would these animals live, eat, etc

Habitats for Kids

After the kids enjoyed making some silly animal puzzles, we made the animals the “right way”. Then we worked on figuring out where the animals and their habitats belonged. We sorted them into 5 different habitats.  There are six animals for each habitat. If you are unsure of what habitat animals belong in, don’t worry there is an answer key included!
