As part of our homeschool science study of biology this year we are taking a closer look at animals of different classifications. To help my kids learn about some animals more in-depth, I created this free printable animal report form for each of the different classifications we studied.

Christian Kids Explore Biology Science Curriculum for Homeschoolers

christian kids explore biology homeschool science curriculumWe have been using Christian Kids Explore Biology this year for homeschool science. We love the easy to use, fun format with well explained lessons, hands on learning ideas, and even coloring sheets which keep my younger learners engaged too. Since we have been studying animals from the different Animal Classifications I thought it was a great opportunity for my kids to learn about some new animals and to get a closer look at each classification. 

Animal Report Forms

My idea behind the Animal Report Form Printable is that kids would do a report on an animal from each of the animal classes. They can then add one of the 3 cover choices (one color and two black and white for your student to color).  This way kids would not only learn about a variety of animals, but would also have a grasp about the different classifications animals are divided up into. There are individual Animal Report Forms with descriptions for the following Animal Classifications:

  • Bird Class
  • Fish Class
  • Amphibian Class
  • Reptile Class
  • Mammal Class
  • Insect Class
  • New! Crustacean Class
  • New! Mollusks Class

    There is also a sheet for children to write down several examples of each classification to get a quick at-a-glance understanding on how they are broken down.

    Preschool – 1st Grade Animal Report Forms

    Homeschool BiologyThe Preschool, Kindergarten, and 1st grade Animal Report forms are more simple.  They include handwriting lines to assist younger students to be able to write clearly. They will include things such as:
    • Description of the Animal Classification
    • What do they eat
    • How big does it get
    • Where does it live (habitat & location on a map)
    • Interesting Facts
    • Place for student to draw or place a picture

    The 2nd-6th grade Animal Report Forms have a lot more detail for kids to explore about the animals. They include:
    • Description of each animal classification
    • What do they eat
    • What are babies called
    • What is its habitat & where does it live
    • How big does it get
    • Who are it’s predators
    • Interesting Facts
    • Draw or place a picture

    You may want to have older students do more than one report per classification. For example – flying & non flying birds or monotremes & marsupials mammals.

    1. Thank you! I can't wait to use these with my girls!

    2. I seem to be having trouble downloading this one.
      I clicked on the link (several times) to download it and it takes me to a google pdf page, but the page is blank.
      Am I doing something wrong?

      1. It's working fine, just checked. Here is my post with troubleshooting for trouble downloading my free printables -


    3. Thank you so much for the printable. Very appreciated.
      I have a question: for which age group would you think is the 'Explore Science'???
