Do you need another way to review the vocabulary for insects? Words cards with two different formats and a memory game can make it easier to learn new words.

Each word card has the terms* in English, Spanish, Russian, and Vietnamese. There's a simple definition and an illustration. Choose to print pages with four different cards or pages with four copies of the same card. Check out the preview to see the two different formats.

Play a memory game with the words abdomen, antenna, egg, exoskeleton, head, molting, nymph, and thorax.
