This activity takes about 15 minutes. However, it can be extended to longer with optional activities. This product includes 16 insect cards with pictures (not clip art) and the name (in all caps) of the insect. Photos illustrate the legs so kids can see the bug has the appropriate number of legs and can see the symmetry of the bug. There are also 8 cards with "other" living creatures. Our looks at each pic determining "insect" or "not". We put them on the rug as a group and one-by-one each kid selects a pic then puts it in the bug catcher if it's an insect. You can also print two sets of the 16 insect cards and play a matching game. To extend the lesson, fold a piece of white construction paper in half. Round off the corners. Ask the kids to paint the paper red. When the paint dries, paste onto a piece of green paper. Have the kids add the legs. Have a supply of black construction paper circles on hand and the kids can add the dots to make lady bugs. Instead of paper, the kids can paint on the black dots. Emphasize the the symmetry of the bug by asking them to add the same amount on each side as well as adding three legs to each side. Add head, eyes and antennae.
