Teach your child about early explorers like the Vikings or Christopher Columbus with these fun toddler, kindergarten, and preschool worksheets.
FREE Early Explorers Worksheets are great for young learners in preschool, prek, kindergarten, and first grade for social studies, Columbus, and just general number and letter practice with an educational theme.

In Kindergarten we are studying about Early Explorers. We’ve made masks, shields, and the coolest Viking ship ever (at least I think so).

My preschooler really enjoyed the hands on learning but then wanted to do worksheets like big brother too. So I whipped up these early explorer themed preschool worksheets.

Here are our other preschool worksheets and alphabet worksheets!

Early Explorer Preschool Worksheets

explorer worksheets for preschool, kindergarten

Practice for preschoolers counting the dots on one dice and associating them with the correct number. Explorers mat for practicing making E and/or V in a tactile way – playdough, glittler, pasta, sandpaper, paint, etc.
roll and graph  roll and graph2

A classic & favorite with my readers – Roll & Graph. I’ve included 6 different early explorers. I recommend using the explorers names (included with description of what they did) throughout your play to help you kids start remembering these famous men.

things used by early explorers  learning to use a compass

Cut & Paste to figure out what items early explorers took with them on their journey. Introduce your preschooler to basic cardinal directions by cutting out the treasure chest and placing it to the N, S, E, or W of the explorer ship.
practice colors and color words

Practice colors by tracing the word with the correct color. Or print the sheet twice and make it a matching game! Improve fine motor skills with the prewriting page helping the explorer get to an item that represents them.
letter recognition activity for preschool
Practice letters by using a bingo marker (or color, circle, etc.) the letter S for ship. Trace the “V”s for Vikings.
