It's Insect time!

First we read many non-fiction books and gathered information about all kinds of insects. 

Our insect unit lasts about 2 weeks.  We discussed the differences between questions and statements, then sorted some example of each on our chart. 

Do you like bugs?  Are they creepy or cool?

Of course after explaining why we thought one way or the other, we graphed and wrote about our findings.

Learning about insects is the perfect time to introduce adjectives (of course we've discussed them all year, but now we can distinguish between adjectives, nouns, and verbs.)

The life cycle of a butterfly is so fascinating to little ones!  We sorted facts about each stage in the cycle then divided into groups to construct our illustrations about each stage.

Whats an insect unit without honeybees?

After reading other non-fiction literature, we labeled and described honeybees.
