These are the activities that we did for the bugs unit. Of course we don't always get to everything planned depending on how the day goes, but if I don't get to them one day I usually adapt them and do them later in that unit.
These are the spider sun catchers which turned out very cute. You put clear pony beads and pipe cleaners in muffin tins then melt in the oven on 400 for 15 min. Helpful hint, place pipe cleaners in pony beads so they are more stable and the bead melts around the pipe cleaner. When you remove from oven put google eyes on before they are cool so it will melt and stick to the spider.
This is the spider web paper toss game we played with masking tape and crumpled newspaper.
On ant day we listened to the Ants Go Marching song then we went outside with instruments and had our own Ants Go Marching parade while we sang the song. :).
They all really liked the ladybugs. I also used the ladybugs to sing the Ladybug Ladybug song by Frank Leto found on YouTube. The song has a ladybug that lands on different body parts and the children take a button ladybug and have it land on the same parts of their body.
