Weekly Activities E-newsletter: Free Patterns! -- Post the spider and insect pictures. Poll students to find out which pictures they think show insects. Record the number of votes near pictures. Next, teach students the poem. Explain that an insect has six legs and three body parts (head, thorax, and abdomen). Then revisit the pictures and poll students again. To follow up, have each youngster use arts-and-crafts materials to make a model of an insect.
This is a 4 page pack of all things food chain! The kids will be able to use what they have learned to apply it independently or with a partner. They will be able to research, create, and I created a poster or mini poster to include while you teach!.I have included a page that explains how I use it in my own classroom!
