The children will need access to the internet to complete the information about hedgehogs. They need to find the hedgehog’s habitat, what food they eat, what their prey is, and how long their life span is.

We also use this book Life Cycles for our studies however, they do not have hedgehogs included. We also love to use this life cycle kit, but again they do not have hedgehogs in. But I still recommend them.

For the next worksheet the children have to write words about hedgehogs in this have, can, and are list.

The hedgehog vocabulary words can be found, horizontally, vertically, frontwards, or backwards! Just to make it that much harder!
