I used Deanna Jump's insect unit from TPT for almost our whole unit. It was amazing! We started by reading "Busy Buzzy Bee" from our reading book. We learned about bees and beekeepers and even tasted honey! We built bugs with candy and shape blocks, wrote a book about various insects, and rounded up buggy rhymes. By the end of the two week unit the kids were able to read an insect book and make a poster to share with the class.
Here are some pictures from our insect adventures...
Now, we'll be moving onto a 3 week study of animals and their habitats. I'll be using the map of our state zoo as a way to move from animal to animal. Along the way, we'll stop at the consession stand to get some 'popcorn adjectives'! Among other resources, I'll be using Deanna Jump's zoo unit and Babbling Abby's Popcorn Adjective lesson pack.
