Have your students write spider poetry or spider reports and then make a web complete with a spider to display along side of it!
I have done this project for many years and know that 1st and 2nd graders can *SO* do it... my 3rd graders just did it and it was a lot easier with the bigger kids! I'm sure 1st-4th graders would enjoy this one!
I have been teaching since 2004. I have taught preschool, first, and second grades. I currently teach 3rd grade reading and LOOOOVE it!
