We Love Bugs!

Our books this week were all related to bugs! Here are the stories we read. 
Then we made an insect craft. The insect's base was a drinking straw. A piece of pool noodle was threaded on for the insect's abdomen, a pom-pom was glued on for its head and, between those two body parts, three pipe cleaners were twisted to make a throax with six legs. Reinforcements were big insect eyes and foil wings were glued to the throax area. It was a great looking insect with all the right body parts!
Then we snipped the back end of the straw with scissors to make it look like the tapered back of an insect. And when we blew into that part, the vibrations made a buzzing sound - like an insect!
