While some may not like creepy, crawly creatures with 6 legs, our preschoolers find them to be fascinating! We have been studying their 3 body parts...the head, thorax and abdomen. The children have been reading books about insects, observing and drawing preserved insects at the science table and creating their own (much cuter than real) bugs!!
To create their giant bugs, they first painted papers with a lot of different colors and some patterns. They cut out all the body parts and glued them on to black paper.
