Children in first and second grades enjoy studying about insects!
I have another product called “Butterflies” in my TpT store which
focuses on the “life cycle” of a butterfly. This unit “models” what
a life cycle is, and what an insect is. My new Insect Unit furthers
students’ insect studies as they work independently.
Students can read the Backyard Bugs series:
(I highly recommend this series).
Busy Buzzers - Bees in Your Backyard
Chirp, Chirp! - Crickets in Your Backyard
Tiny Workers – Ants in Your Backyard
Hungry Hoppers – Grasshoppers in Your Backyard
Living Lights – Fireflies in Your Backyard
Certainly, other “leveled” non-fiction insect books could be read to
fill in the insect pamphlet template I have created to help young
students show what they learn. I have also included a Technology
Page where students can do more research about their insect online as well as a few poems.
This is a great way to end the year!!!!
