We have been studying insects the past few weeks in class! In my previous years, I had only taught about caterpillars and butterflies. This year I found out our science program will let us study a few different insects.
First up, are meal worms!
I have plenty of butterfly activities from [this pack] I had made this year, but I needed a few different things for this unit, so I made a little mini-unit that I thought I would offer up as a freebie.
We held these crawling little buggers in our hands today and the kids were squirming and giggling all over the place! Then, we recorded our observations in our journal:
We unscrambled some insect sentences during handwriting:
and practiced mentally adding and subtracting 10 with this little math game:
Last, we did a little close reading all about the Venus Flytrap and my kids thought is was THE COOLEST PLANT EVER!
Plants unit, but since we won't be studying those for a couple more weeks, I thought this would be a nice addition to our insect study*
All of the activities above (except the close read) are for FREE in this little unit I uploaded to TPT last night! I hope others can use them!
