Simple writing and art lesson.
After looking at and discussing the characteristics of spiders, we then discussed the difference between facts and opinions. Next came the fun of watching my students have a great time writing facts and their own opinions about spiders.
For the Art Activity - I just cut out two sizes of black circles to represent the cephalothorax and abdomen, and black strips for the legs. We simply glued one to the other.
Show the students how to fold each leg in an accordion fashion. This gives the spiders a 3D appearance when glued to the paper.
Add two small black puff-balls for eyes. I've also used wiggly-eyes for this instead. Math Element: Use the spiders to add groups of eight! Its Multiplication in disguise. Quick Tip: For quick and easy dissemination, place all materials for each spider into a baggie to create individual spider kits. Students will have all they need to make their spiders in a matter of seconds.
