Bugs, Bugs, Bugs!

This weeknight we have been learning all about insects! We found out that they all have three body parts and six legs. There are also over 1,000,000 insects in the world! I bet you thought there were only mosquitoes! We also four out that a spider is NOT an insect, and they are just as scared of us as we are of them! 
We did lots of fun art projects, too! We made a beehive with our fingerprints, and we painted paper plates to make ladybugs! After we finished painting the body and the wings, Mrs. Jones added the spots. Their spots have to match exactly on each wing! Then we played a game. She gave us one of our wings, and we had to find the other one without looking at our names! It was not as easy as we thought it would never, but it was fun.  Next week we will learn more about these creatures and how they can help and hurt!
