Hard insects vocabulary matching worksheet
The first handout above is quite challenging for ESL learners. There are 16 common insects to match. Students should write the correct insect name under each picture. For beginners, this works well as a homework assignment or a research project.
This is a great activity to do before using the insects conversation questions.
It should be noted that these worksheets contain animals that are not actually insects although they are often referred to as such. To be clear, spiders and scorpions are arachnids and centipedes are really arthropods. You may want to mention this in your classes.
The answers for the first handout, from left to right going down the page are – dragonfly, centipede, grasshopper, termite, butterfly, cockroach, mosquito, wasp, ant, moth, bee, stick insect, ladybug or ladybird, stag beetle, fly, and cricket.
