Match the Seashells to Their Names Worksheet

I’ve been creating seashell coloring pages for a while with a single shell (or two) on each page.  This new “match the seashells to their names” worksheet is more of a learning page for classroom or home-school teaching.  I’m offering this page as a free, fun printable for home or classroom, and not as something to copy and sell.  The images are mine and are copyrighted.

My hope is that young kids may become interested in seashells and the creatures that make them.   The “names” of the shells and urchin and sand dollars are simple, but more information can be found on some of the pages of this blog.

Complete the worksheet by drawing lines from the name of the shell to the image.  Because the printout is in black and white, it might be fun to research each type of shell to see it’s coloring.  If you need help figuring out some of the shell names, I have links to pages for each one below.

You can become more familiar with the different types of shells at my Types of Shells article which I wrote at the Wizzley writing site. Or peruse this blog where most of these shells have their own page of info.

Lightning Whelk

Fighting Conch

Jewel Box

Cowry

Sea Cookie 

Queen / Pink Conch

Worm shells

Auger

This free, printable, page lists twelve common names of shells with the corresponding shell art along each side.  Kids can draw a line to connect the picture with the name and then they can color the page.
