We created these fireflies from construction paper. I had the pieces precut and the kids just rounded the corners and glued together as we went step by step. It was very time consuming to cut the pieces for 4 insects for 23 students but I love the ending product.
We also made a book because we are entomologists now! We made a cover, a table of contents and a page about each insect. This is my chart but each child has his or her own book with the recorded facts.
I learned something new about each insect. I also have a child that has incredible knowledge about all animals and he told us a lot of facts. Thanks, Jacob!
This is the butterfly chart with the information.
This is our "flock" of butterflies.
Praying Mantis was the most fun to make.
Mrs. Voss made grouchy ladybugs and each child had to make themselves make a grouchy face. HILARIOUS!!
We made a dragonfly which was the easiest because it was circle glued in an AB pattern!
This is a picture of Mrs. Voss's class with a hat like the Cat in the Hat. They recorded words that are in the "at" family.
Mrs. Voss' class also enjoyed eating green eggs and ham!
