We started by reading the story about insects by Deanna Jump. We introduce the bugs through flashcards and then we sort them by insects (six legs, head torax abdomen, antennae, sometimes wings) or other bugs.
Most of the activities done in this unit are taken from Deanna's work or based on it.
Through this poster we revised the different bugs and said somethings about each one of them.
Then we learned the parts of an insect and completed an activity simplified from Deanna's work where kids drew an insect pointing out its different body parts.
BUG RIDDLES: CAN YOU BE A BUG DETECTIVE?
We used these posters to try and guess the different bugs. After i said described bugs and they tried to guess. They also tried to do it.
