This is a great little math activity to go with your insect unit. Kiddos work independently or with a partner to count the insects. They use tally marks to complete the recording page. When students come to consensus on the number of each insect they graph their totals.
I usually make a large class tally chart to come to consensus on totals as a class before graphing. I just blow up each imsect on the copier and and create the tally on chart paper.
Works great in a center as well!!
