This spider research project is a fun, hands on, engaging way to bring research and writing about spiders into your classroom. Through whole group research, the use of thinking maps and writing activities, students will learn all about spiders! Students will learn how about spider bodies, where they live, what they eat and how they help people! This resource makes research and writing simple and fun for all grades!
This spider research pack is designed to be used in grades preK-5.
These pages are designed to make whole class charts and then students can complete their individual pages. For pre-K, kindergarten and 1st grade you can do research whole group through read aloud and videos. You then record the learning on the charts. Students can then copy their learning into their journal. For older grades, students can do independent research and complete their journal and share their learning with the class.
The student pages can be done separately or made into a farm research journal. We make ours into farm book that students complete as we learn about spiders!
