This sea turtle counting activity is the perfect way to practice counting and build number sense during your ocean theme! Count the number of sea turtles (counters) and eggs (white pompoms) into a circular paint palette or onto the counting mat. Take it to the next level by determining the missing number to make 10! These two levels of counting help you easily differentiate math centers for your preschoolers or kindergarteners!

Then, learn about the life cycle of a sea turtle by reading the book and acting out each stage in a sensory bin. Acting out the turtle life cycle helps kids remember it better!

This sea turtle activity includes (in both color and black & white):

  • turtle nest labels for paint palette
  • labels for tubs (turtles & eggs)
  • counting mat
  • 11 cards with both numbers filled in
  • 22 cards with 1 number filled in
  • blank cards
  • 12-page sea turtle life cycle book

Sea turtles are often preschoolers' favorite ocean animals. There's no doubt your students will be absolutely thrilled to see both of these activities prepared for them! Grab them today and engage your learners during your ocean theme!

Materials needed for this turtle math activity:

  • white pompoms
  • turtle counters
