Going on a Bug Hunt

This month we have been learning all about insects. We have learned about their three body parts, the head, thorax and abdomen, and that all insects have 6 legs. We have just started talking about insect habitats. Today we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and get outside. We went on a bug hunt! Each child was armed with a pencil, clipboard, report paper, and magnifier. Their task was to find a bug (preferably and insect) and observe it to see what they could find out. They then wrote their report with the help of a few insect books from our library, and will report to the class what they found. It was a great activity and we learned a lot!
