The animal classification worksheet is meant for children of age groups 3 to 5 years of age. The animal world is quite fascinating for children and they are always attracted to varied kinds of animals.

How to Classify Animals?

The children would understand that the animals belong to different categories. And animals have special traits which make them capable of surviving in their habitat – the place where they live.

The children have to group animals based on the different characteristics that each animal has. This animal classification worksheet will help the children understand the varied differences between different kinds of animals.

Reptiles – Reptiles are distinguished by having dry and scaly skin. These animals creep on the floor, walls, or underwater. Most of reptiles have scales on their body. Lizards, snakes, and crocodiles are reptiles.

Fish – Fishes are aquatic animals that swim in the water and cannot live without water. They have gills to breathe underwater. Most of fishes are streamlined in their general body form.

Amphibian – Amphibians are types of animals that require water to survive, though they spend time both on land and in water. Though other animals only live on land or in the water, amphibians have the unique ability to thrive equally in both. They have thin skin and they breathe through their skin.

Bird – The body of the bird is covered by feathers. They are warm-blooded. Birds are the kind off animals that love to fly high up in the sky. They do come on land, and make their shelter on trees, but they migrate by flying. They lay eggs in their nests to keep them safe.

Mammal – mammals have fur or hair on their bodies which distinguishes them from the rest of the species of animals. They are the only species that directly give birth to their young ones. Mammals are the largest species in the kingdom of animals and they respire through lungs.

Children have to cut the portion of each picture of the animal as marked. Allow them to use safety scissors. Next, they would identify each animal and paste the picture under the correct category.
