"Insects," and, "Not Insects," Sorting Activity

Oftentimes people will confuse certain creatures with insects that are not, in fact, insects at all! For example, you may hear spiders referred to as insects when they are actually arachnids. This worksheet is a fantastic way for children to learn what makes up an insect and what critters are not insects!

Sorting Insects/Not Insects

Insects are arthropods that typically have six legs, two antenna, and a body that is segmented into three sections--a head, thorax, and abdomen. Insects can have wings, but don't have to in order to be insects.

This worksheet contains cards that feature the following insects: Butterfly, grasshopper, dragonfly, and ant.

This worksheet also contains cards that are not insects: Snail, worm, spider, and centipede. As you do this activity with students you can discuss why these creatures do or don't qualify as insects (a snail lacks the legs and three sections, for example).
