Some of the class got together and had the idea to have a Bug Day. They decided a letter needed to be written to the Parents to tell them about the day:


“Bring 2 or 3 or 1 bugs. Puppet show at Play: ‘A Very Buggy Day.’ If not bring bug, then just come to school because the leaders will have some for you to borrow. Go gardening and go on the nature trail with your bug and we go find bugs have a very buggy lunch and gouter all day.”

We found ants, spiders, butterflies and some we didn’t know. We got some books from the library. We watched the carpenter bees zoom around the garden.

What kinds of bugs can you see in this video?

What kind of bug is this?

Why are bugs important to people, to animals and to the earth?

What is your favorite kind of bug? Can you draw and label 10 different kinds of bugs?

    Greetings from Canada!

    The Praying Mantis is intriguing, but I’ve always had a soft spot for the Ladybugs and Butterflys. I remember collecting grasshoppers when I was little and keeping them in jars in my bedroom overnight, then releasing them the next morning. I love hearing crickets at dusk, making their ‘singing’ sounds. =)
