This resource contains two investigations. One investigation is led by you as a guided experiment. Students gain exposure to new concepts, and practice following the scientific method as the teacher models quality questioning, writing and procedural techniques.
Then, the second experiment releases some of the independence to the kids as they design their own investigation to learn about an environmental factor of their choice.
This resource includes:
sample schedule of activities
vocabulary word cards
Frayer model vocabulary graphic organizer
Parts of an Insect diagram(color and black and white)
student sheet- parts of an insect
venn diagram- compare/contrast insects and spiders
group investigation sheets

student written response
Concepts covered include:
head, thorax, abdomen (parts of an insect)

This resource would be great for a home school environment as it does not require a group of students.
