While "Buggy Buddies and Arachnids Too" is a fun filled package that teaches students the differences and similarities among insects and spiders, it also helps them develop their classification observation, and research.
Students are sure to have fun as they learn about ants, beetles (in general, and ladybugs), dragonflies, flies, and spiders through research booklets that they can craft. The research booklets have templates where students can fill in the blanks on observations, such as anatomy, habitat, predators, and prey. There is a section where they can draw or find a picture to diagram of their special insect or spider. There are decorated sheets left blank in the middle for students to do their own things with the research that may not have been included in the pre-packaged curriculum.
This package was inspired by free clip art that I downloaded from Teacherspayteachers. It was provided courtesy of Carmela Fiorino Vieria. You can visit her store here:
