buggy science center

When we have a creepy crawlies theme in the classroom, I make sure to have lots of fun things in the science center.

I provide books, hand lenses, and little insect models.  I also place lots of pictures with the name of the insects on the wall.

The children love looking at the insects.  I also try to have an ant farm for the children to experience. 

Later I will add plastic spiders and then they could have a game of sorting the insects and spiders.

You would be amazed at how much a student can learn about insects.
