Montessori Materials for Parts of the Earthworm Activities

Once the child has learned about the different types of invertebrates, particularly the Worms, they might be interested in learning about the parts of the earthworm.

Worms are a diverse group of invertebrates that can be found in soil, water, and even other animals. They break down old plants and animals, which helps new things grow and they are also an important food source for other animals.

Before learning about their parts, have the child observe an actual earthworm (or a model) to help them have a more concrete grasp on the subject.

Materials to Support Learning the Parts of the Earthworm

Earthworm Model

You can use the adult earthworm object if you already have a set of life cycle miniature objects. Here’s what I recommend:


You can also provide printable materials to support this learning and help the child know the different parts of the earthworm.

Printable Activities to Learn the Parts of the Earthworm

The Parts of a Earthworm Activity helps kids improve their reading skills and learn the right names for animal parts, which helps them build their vocabulary. It also allows the child to know some of the earthworm’s features. This also encourages the appreciation for nature.

1. Montessori Zoology 5-Part Nomenclature Cards

This learning material have a light brown border around each card and includes a set of cards with 5 parts including the definitions and a booklet with descriptions about each part of the earthworm. This is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 6.

Zoology Nomenclature Cards are unique to Montessori classrooms and provide an engaging alternative to textbooks and worksheets. They are a beautiful resource that encourages children to learn concepts, rather than rush through to finish a worksheet.

2. Control Chart and Fill-in Posters

After learning the individual parts of the earthworm, display the wall chart and invite the child to make her own wall chart of the parts of the earthworm with these printable poster sheets of 3 different charts:

  • With color and label
  • Without color, with label
  • Without color, without label

*Sign-up to our newsletter and get the control charts for free! Or get these in a bundle with other vertebrates control charts HERE at $2/set!

3. Montessori Zoology Definitions Booklets
