Insects & Bugs in room five

The world of insects and bugs is so exciting to preschoolers. We discussed about the different species that exists around the world. Also we learned about their body parts, life cycles, habits, and food. To introduce this theme we read The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle. Through this book they learned the concept of metamorphosis and created representations of a butterfly’s life cycle, in addition we encountered distinct math, reading, and science activities. Furthermore, we started to work on the Art Show, where we chose Mister Sea Horse, by Eric Carle as our topic. Our children are so excited to learn about ocean animals. We are working on making our own aquarium, where they will create their own sea horses and different kinds of fish using different art materials
