To start off our insect lesson, we compared what we know about the traits of animals, people and insects. However, this may be better for the end of an insect unit.
Here are my favorite Pinterest inspirations from other amazing teachers! Just click the picture to see the website of the original creator of the activity.
Firefly Craft- Add a glow stick inside of a mountain dew bottle! (idea found on Pinterest)
We just completed a fun “Hungry Caterpillar” activity, using real fruit and a caterpillar toy to retell Eric Carle’s story. My students also tasted each fruit, just as the caterpillar did!
What wonderful ideas!! Bugs in spring is one of my favourite themes. Now I’m armed with some new art projects, especially the firefly. Thanks for sharing.
But people ARE animals, so this is confusing.
