Insects- The students learned that most insects do more good than bad. That bees, wasps, flies, beetles, mosquitoes and butterflies are great pollinators. Some insects eat other insects, keeping each insect group from getting too big. We also talked about how insects like ladybugs are a farmers best-friend, because they eat tiny crop eating insects called aphids. They also learned that all insects have three main body parts: the head, the thorax, and the abdomen. The head has large compound eyes, the antenna (feelers), and the mouth parts. That the thorax is the middle region of the body and has the legs and wings. Then, their is the abdomen.

Plants and Flowers: The students learned how plants grow in many places: parks, forests, yards, fields, deserts, lakes etc. They discovered how all plants need sunlight, water, air and food to grow. The students also learned the different parts of plants and their purposes. For example, the stem helps move food and nutrients through the plant or flower in order for it to grow.

Work Time:

Puzzle Words: This child is completing the words by moving and rotating different letters to fit in the correct order.
