These printable hummingbird activities for kids are designed to help elementary students learn more about these amazing birds.
As the weather warms up, I’m enjoying all the sights and sounds that are happening right outside my window. For instance, there is a sweet little hummingbird that visits the bush right in front of my office window.
This little visitor inspired me to share some fun facts and activities so you can teach your kids all about these gorgeous little birds.

books about hummingbirds
I love to include a wide variety of books in my lessons. I use some for read-alouds and save others for independent reading (when appropriate).
Below, I’m sharing a few of my favorite nonfiction books about hummingbirds. I find they’re perfect for introducing the animal, increasing vocabulary, and illustrating important information.

Young learners love hands-on activities, and they help little ones engage with the topic at hand. When studying hummingbirds, you can add one or more of these activities to your to-do list:
• Hang a hummingbird feeder near a window to attract birds for your kids to see up close.
