Insect Fun In Kindergarten



 
My kids love to learn about bugs and insects! This week that is our focus. We are only two days in, but we have accomplished a lot. Take a look to see what we are doing.
 
 



 
 
We began our week by learning about bugs in general. We learned that insects have six legs, 2 antenna, and an exoskeleton. I created this emergent reader to teach my kids about insects. Anything that I can do to keep them reading seems to help.
 

We also looked at insects beneath a microscope.

 
Our focus for today was ladybugs. We read these two books. They were a big hit!



 
We created these ladybugs using a template that I created. It is amazing how they can all use the same pieces but still end up with a different looking creation.
 


We studied the life cycle of a ladybug. It has several stages to go through before it becomes a full size bug.

 
I created this book that gives facts about ladybugs by having the students see what their life would be like if they were a ladybug.

 
We brainstormed about what we learned about ladybugs. This was our pre-writing!

 
We finished up by writing a sentence about ladybugs.

 
This is the template that we use for our ladybug craft.
 
 

 
We also spent a day learning about bees. This is the book that I introduced our topic with. I really liked this one. This would make a great addition to a classroom library.

 
After reading we completed our bubble map together as a class.

 
We then created these cute little bees and wrote about them.
 




 
 
 

 
These activities came out of my insects unit that I created for Kindergarten. I will keep posting pics as we complete them each day. Thanks for looking!
