    We read the story “Diary of a Spider” in our reading text books. I”m looking forward to linking this lesson with our reading lesson!

    My students enjoyed using their imaginations to create a new spider and enjoyed using play dough to build it. What a hands-on lesson!!! We learned how many legs, eyes, and body parts spiders have. We even talked about their habitats. Plus we learned a new word – Arachnologist.

    Is it possible to edit the information sheet? Spiders have two body parts and insects have three. Naming the legs as a body part is not accurate. Maybe add the more scientific terms such as abdomen.

      Hi Brenda!
      Good catch! Thank you for catching that oops on our end. The labels have been updated on the information sheet, and “abdomen” was included as well. We hope that you enjoy the lesson and have a great day!
