Primary Worksheets: Jellyfish

Primary worksheets on the topic of the jellyfish designed for primary school students. A basic passage with questions at the end to answer, testing the students comprehension levels.

The Jellyfish have been around for millions of years, even before dinosaurs lived on the Earth! These creatures can be found in both cold and warm waters in deep or shallow areas. There are many different colours of jellyfish, but all are clear!

Jellyfish have no brain, heart, bones, or eyes. They are made up of a body that is like a smooth bag, with many stinging tentacles.

They do have a mouth which is found in the centre of its body! They are able to eat and discard waste from their mouth. They can squirt out water from its mouth, allowing it to move forward.

Basic Tips

When teaching a new concept to a student, make it as visual as possible. Concepts become more comprehensible. A standard lesson should follow this basic structure:

  • Introduction: gather what knowledge the students have on the topic. Assess and evaluate your level to base how much assistance they require throughout the lesson
  • Concept: teaching the actual topic of the lesson. Highlight the difficulty the students are having and apply the appropriate action. For example, if they do not understand the meaning of a word, get them to highlight it for further studying in the future.
  • Evaluation: conclude the lesson by getting the students to feedback what you have taught. Ensure they comprehend the topic and know the main points.

Build the confidence level of students through active participation. Encourage projects for them to do what they have learnt into practical use. The more engaging the lesson is, the better the result.
