All About Insects
Hey, y'all! It's finally starting to feel like spring around here and we jumping head first into our Earth and Life Science units. Thank goodness, cause I am so over this cold, snowy weather thing!
This week, we'll be studying insects and various other bugs. We'll start off Monday by building schema with an insect book and a graffiti wall, then doing a little bug hunt around the school.
Tuesday through Thursday, the students will visit a series of stations learning all about bugs in general.
They'll explore the parts of an insect, insect life cycles, dig for bugs in a sensory bin, and sort "insects" versus "not insects."
They'll also read a book about insects and build their own bugs out things found in nature. This activity is a favorite!
On Friday, the kids will make their own insect hats. So stinking cute! This unit is just right for kindergarten and 1st grade, but your second graders may enjoy it as well.
