Since Leap Day only comes around every four year, now is the perfect time to teach your kids all about why we have a Leap Year with this free printable Leap Day Worksheet.
The Leap Year worksheet has these fill in the blank questions:
- What is Leap Day?
- How often is there a Leap Year?
- How many days are in a Leap Year?
- Why do we have a Leap Year?
- Is Leap Year ever skipped? If so, why? (Spoiler: Yes, it is sometimes skipped!)
The printable worksheet also includes a line drawing of a frog to color. Frogs are often associated with leap day because … they leap!
If you want to study more about the length of the year, our New Year’s lapbook has some mini booklets about leap year and the length of a year.
