PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Your students will love this engaging ladybug mini-unit! This resource has been created to integrate multiple subject areas including science, math, balanced literacy and art with the fun topic of ladybugs.

Included in this mini-unit:
• A KWL chart to activate students' prior knowledge.
• A non-fiction shared reading story called, "Let's Learn about Ladybugs." Students will learn basic physical attributes of the ladybug while reading along with the easy-to-read text.
• A summarizing activity. Teacher and students will record the main information from the story.
• A reading response/portfolio activity. Students will choose one fact about ladybugs to write and illustrate.
• An adorable ladybug art project. Students will use the tracers (or pre-cut pieces) to create a ladybug craft and integrate a math component by writing an equation for the number of spots.
• An addition activity focusing on mental math strategies to add the ladybug's spots.
• A fun, kinesthetic pictograph activity where students will practice the skills of graphing and reading "ten-frames." Students will then summarize the pictograph information on their very own bar graph.
• Ladybug lined writing paper for any additional writing that you would like to do during this mini-unit!
