Welcome to TLSBooks! You are invited to browse through this offering of worksheets and activities to find and print material for your first grade explorer.

First graders are busy learning about the world around them.

The first grade student will most likely be introduced to maps, globes, basic timelines, the voting process, teamwork, and good citizenship. They will use this newfound knowledge to more fully participate in classroom elections and group activities.

First graders will take an interest in and read about famous people, events, and customs around the world. They may participate in historically-based plays and skits, research their family history, and learn folk songs that tell stories from history.

First grade science will typically include learning about magnetism, sound, matter, living things, and the human body. They will experiment, observe, categorize, question, and record scientific information. Field trips to science museums, observatories, botanical gardens, zoos, and aquariums are popular among this age group.
