Do you have any pets? Pets are so much fun! Even pet fish can be fun to watch as they swim and explore their tanks and interact with other fish in the aquarium. You can build on your preschool or kindergarten’s natural interest in pets with these Fish Matching Shapes Worksheets.
Printable Fish Shapes Matching Activity
These simple print and go Fish Shapes Matching Activity Pages are perfect for practicing shape recognition. If you have the time, sit down with your student and introduce or review the names of the shapes. You may want to count the sides of some shapes together. (Let’s count the sides of the triangle fish. One. Two. Three! Does the rectangle aquarium have the same number of sides? Let’s see. One. Two. Three. Four! The rectangle has more sides than the triangle.)
Ten shapes are included in this Fish Shapes Matching Activity: oval, triangle, hexagon, heart, square, circle, diamond, rectangle, star, and octagon.
The goal of these printable activity pages is to locate a shape on the left side of the page and then to find the same shape on the right side of the page. Draw a line from one to the other and match the diamond fish to the diamond aquarium.
You can encourage your student to get the job done by pretending that the fish flopped out of his tank and he needs help getting back into his aquarium. Can your student do it? Quick! Draw a line from the fish shape to the aquarium shape to help the fish get home.
Benefits of the Fish Matching Shapes Worksheets
These shapes matching activity pages promote shape recognition. You can also use them to boost fine motor skills. Students will use fine motor skills to draw lines from the fish shapes to the aquarium shapes.
Additionally, if you use the black and white version provided in the download, your student can use fine motor skills to color the fish and the aquariums.
