This parody was written with students in grades 2-5 in mind, although there may be first grade students who enjoy it as well as those who are above 5th grade. The song was written to help teacher children about the process of ecdysis (molting) in invertebrates (specifically spiders). These slides can be used as posters to hang on the wall to help children learn the song. It can also be sung by the students as the teacher "molts" in front of the class. I have also included a link to a great video of a tarantula molting. This is a fun way for students to learn about the shedding of exoskeletons.
