I found these bug glasses at Michael's two summers ago (on their Dollar Spot aisle) and these are perfect for this activity.
We made an insect fact book focusing on one particular bug a day. I tried to read a fact and fiction book about each insect.
We started with ladybugs on Monday. One of my sweeties just happened to bring in some ladybugs and he had had both the adults and the larvae. I was so excited! I just love it when things come together without even planning for it!
On Tuesday, we studied bees.
On Wednesday, we learned about fireflies.
On Thursday, we learned about the praying mantis. I couldn't find a fiction book about the praying mantis so we read "The Very Ugly Bug." An appropriate book for this insect, don't you think?
On Friday we learned about grasshoppers.
