We had a fun insect unit! The only thing we missed was making an ant farm because I forgot to order the ants- oops- You know I was so CRUSHED over that. Maybe later on we will do it, or maybe not ;o)
We talked about being a wise child and working hard like the ant works hard. I just love MFW curriculum and how they tie in scripture to God’s creation!
We also read the book “Be NIce to Spiders”. What is so fun about this book is that it was mine when I was a child. I have a box of books that we saved from childhood and so I pull them out when they fit into our units. The kids LOVE knowing mommy used to read the same book and I love it because the stories and illustrations are vintage. It reminds me of simpler times and I love sharing that with the kids. If you don’t have any old books I would encourage you to try a few vintage books. The look, feel, and smell is so unique and the best part is you can usually find them on amazon at great prices because they are used.
Anyway, here are some of the highlights from our unit on Insects, we had fun and hope that some of these ideas will help you have fun too!
