Bugs, Bugs, Bugs

We have started our study of insects, which goes perfectly with our Eric Carle study.  He has done a lot of stories about insects:  The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Quiet Cricket, The Grouchy Ladybug, etc.  We started our study by learning the parts of the insect.  We learned the song "Head, Thorax, and Abdomen" by Dr. Jean.  It is sung to the tune of "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes."  Try getting that song out of your head after singing it all day. ;-)Then we used candy and other food items to make a model of insects.  Here are some of our insects.
