Product Description
Looking for a creative way to learn about those amazing crawly creatures? Look no further! Catch the BUG fever!

Start off this project by reading the two informational articles about:
✔Amazing Arthropods
✔Incredible Insects

Next, introduce the 4 key vocabulary words. Vocabulary Flip Flaps for notebooks and posters are included in this product.
✔Invertebrates
✔Arthropods
✔Exoskeleton
✔Metamorphosis

This is specifically geared for 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade students. Have students research an insect using books from the library, classroom, online encyclopedias, and/or internet. Students use the research pages and life cycle diagrams to guide their research.

After completing the research phase, students will design an insect poster or mural. There’s a one page insect poster page included for students to use or you can have them design their own insect posters or mural.

If doing a poster or mural color in the background for the insect’s habitat last on your mural being sure to include all the other information. Creativity, neatness, and spelling counts! A scoring rubric is enclosed.

I have had great success with this project and students love researching and learning about insects. I've used the big rolls of white butcher paper for their murals giving them lots of room and freedom to be creative! I've had students do it individually or with a partner.

Included is a rubric for student expectations and grading purposes. This project could be done as a culminating activity at the end of the school year or after students learn about insects.

As an extension activity: have students gather "real" insects to bring in to school to study under a microscope or for show and tell. Students can preserve insects by freezing them in the freezer.
