34 printable or digital pages to help students compare and contrast. Students look for ways in which we are different from bugs (insects have six legs while we have two), yet quite similar (snails and humans both eat the leafy part of plants). Students use a four-step method of analysis:

  • Look (at the funny pictures)
  • Think (about what is similar or different)
  • Speak (with a partner about it)
  • Write (on paper)

Funny pictures: fly, bee, snail, jumping spider, caterpillar, firefly, mosquito, moth, black widow spider, ant, roly-poly, yellow jacket, dragonfly, worm, tarantula, click beetle, bee, aphid, slug, praying mantis, roach, ladybug, scorpion, shield bug, pincher bug, butterfly, cricket, beetle, and walking stick.

PRINT: I created a PDF version that you can download on your computer and print for students to use in class or at home. Click on "Add one to cart" and download your copy.

DIGITAL ACTIVITY: I created a digital version with text boxes so students can type in the answers using a computer or tablet (for Distance Learning). Click on "Create Digital Activity" and link the activities to your Google Classroom. Online Resource. Yes, I already added the interactive layer to each page. Enjoy!
