We are having too much fun with our bug unit!
Today, we surveyed our friends, then graphed and tallied. One person said their favorite bug is a mosquito. I’m not buyin’ it! Hahaha!
I also realized that I had a ton of bug paraphernalia and decided to make bug centers. Whoop whoop!
Station 1: We sorted these little bugs from the Target dollar section by insect/non-insect, wings/no wings, and color!
Station 2: I have these real, dead bugs from Lakeshore and little handheld magnifying glasses. The problem? Lakeshore only labeled the bugs on the green container, not on the bugs themselves. Panic! So, I gave each kid a different color marble and when they took a bug out, they HAD to put their marble in its place. I thought I was a genius, until everyone kept forgetting to do that and I became Mrs. Crabby Pants and made kids miss the next station for forgetting. Rawr!
Station 4: Bug Puzzles – easy and fun
Station 5: Giant bugs from the Target dollar section that I bought last year and totally forgot about. The kids loved these and had magnifying glasses!
And our alphabet countdown continues with the letter N Silly Hats!
15 school days to go!!!
