We read our big book, The Very Busy Spider and circled our popcorn words.
We read lots of poems and our favorite one uses our names!
We read, Little Miss Muffet and created our own rhymes.
This one says, Little Miss Molly sat on a dolly.
We learned a lot of new vocabulary words during this unit. One of the words we learned was camouflage. To check their understanding of the word I gave them a colored spider and they drew a picture in their Science Journals to illustrate the word.
In Math we made a Spider glyph and analyzed and graphed our data. We turned our Spider glyph into a headband so that we could wear it when we did our cool Spider Bite experiment. This experiment helped us find out the answer to the question, How do spiders eat their prey?
We have another science experiment and a few more activities that we are doing tomorrow. I will post the pictures this weekend. A lot of the activities and patterns for this unit are featured in my Spiders unit which is on Teachers pay Teachers.
