I can’t think of a better time to start teaching about life cycles than in Preschool! Preschoolers love being outside, they are curious about the world around them, and most preschoolers I know LOVE creepy crawly bugs. Digital Ladybug Life Cycle Activities for Preschoolers are a great way to practice labeling and identifying the stages of an insect life cycle.
Colorful pictures and interactive slides make this digital activity exciting and engaging for little learners.
Vocabulary skills will be strengthened as students learn about the ladybug life cycle and label the egg, ladybug larvae, pupa stage, and adult ladybug.
Learning About Life Cycles:
Learning about insect life cycles in preschool is not only exciting, but it also has many benefits!
Children gain a greater appreciation for nature and the environment when they learn about just how incredible nature is.
Just like with other content areas, preschoolers learn best when they participate in learning and hands on activities.
This life cycle activity is a wonderful, interactive way to practice ordering and identifying life cycle stages. Pair it with some play dough practice or a fun ladybug craft to add in some extra hands on fun!

How To Use This Life Cycle Of A Ladybug Preschool Activity:
Enter your email address below and check your inbox for a link to this digital ladybug life cycle for preschoolers activity.
Click on either the Google Slides or Seesaw version of the activity.
If you are using the Google Slides activity, be sure to follow the prompts to “Make a Copy” of the Life Cycle of a Ladybug Activity. This will make it easy to share with your students.
Put the activity into “Edit” mode and you will be able to interact with the slides.
To interact with the Seesaw version of the activity, be sure to use the text tool “T”.
The set up is completely the same for both the Google Slides and Seesaw version of the activity.
The first slide shows the life cycle of the lady bug and has the four stages listed at the bottom.
Students will drag and drop the vocabulary word that best matches the picture in the life cycle.
For the last four slides, students will look at the picture and choose the vocabulary word that completes the “I See” sentence at the top of the slide.
This is a fabulous activity for pre-readers! (and science lovers!)
Other Ideas For Your Ladybug Life Cycle Lesson Plans:
- Develop more science vocabulary by learning about the body parts of the lady bug.
- Use these fun ladybug life cycle for kids play dough mats for some more hands on practice.
- Compare the ladybug life cycle stages to other bug life cycles like the grasshopper or butterfly life cycle.
- Have some life cycle craft and art time. Create your own drawings of each stage of the lady bug life cycle. You can use crayons, markers, or paint. If you want to take the activity outside, you can draw with chalk on the pavement!
