Free Printable Worksheets

free printable worksheets

Our free printable worksheets have been designed for teachers and parents wishing to use the information on this site as part of a lesson or home activity.

They offer a fun way of teaching young people not only about wildlife and animals, but also about using the internet to research facts and information.

All questions are multiple choice, and are based on information that can easily be found on the corresponding Active Wild page or pages.

There's no log-in or sign-up required: simply click on the worksheet you want to download! Instructions can be found further down this page.

(If your computer displays the worksheet rather than downloading it, click on 'File', then 'Save As …' in the menu bar of your browser while the worksheet is on the screen. You'll then be able to choose where on your computer the file is saved.)


Please note that many of the question sheets do not have answer sheets – this is to ensure that students complete the questions themselves. We suggest that teachers make a list of answers of their own against which their students' completed sheets can be checked. We are looking into ways in which this can be improved.

We welcome any comments and / or suggestions on how this or any other section of the site could be improved for teachers – you can get in touch via our contact page.
