Ladybugs are great to use around springtime because there is so much cross-curricular content you can cover with them. There are a bunch of stories about ladybugs (ex: The Grouchy Ladybug) that you could use for retell, you can teach about their life cycle and importance to vegetable farmers in science, and you can compare or add their spots in math!
