I love our mealworm/darkling beetle unit so much, but there are not a lot of "cute" projects out there for those burrowing larvae and crawling beetles. This craftivity is an engaging project for students to review the stages of the insect life cycle and also create their own cute mealworm bug!
This activity comes in English and Spanish and can be differentiated depending on the level of your class.
Here's what you get so you can adapt the activity any way you want:
-Beetle Body Cutout (in English or Spanish)
-Mealworm Life Cycle phases with simple vocabulary in English and Spanish
-Mealworm Life Cycle phases with cloze sentences in English and Spanish
-Mealworm Life Cycle phases with cloze sentences out of order (students have to paste the stages in the correct order)
-Mealworm Life Cycle phases with short answer spaces (students have to describe the different phases and then paste them in order)
Students use pipe cleaners for the legs and antennae. The finished product beetle not only is a great review or assessment tool, they are so cute your students will love to read them and share them with others!
