Want a fun way to assess your students' understandings on insects or maybe you're just looking for a fun & creative activity to supplement your 1st grade FOSS Insects and plants curriculum? This project-based learning activity is a class favorite! Students are given the task of using their imaginations and current understandings to invent an insect that includes all of its defining features & attributes.
Maybe they create the dollar insect that lives in a wallet and eats coins OR the lava bug that eats rocks and lives in a volcano! The possibilities are endless!
This bundle includes:
*Teacher planning support-standards (1st grade), student outcomes, directions, "I can" statements, essential/driving question, and links to helpful videos for further learning
*Pages for students to name & draw their insect; identify its needs, food source, habitat and life cycle
*Written portion for students to justify their insects ability to thrive
*Teacher/student point rubric for ease in grading and setting individual learning goals
