The favorite of this unit of course. The Anthill. We were really surprised by how much we learnt! And though I'm REALLY squeamish about anything that moves that isn't human, I'm real glad we did this. It was fun!!
We also did a lapbook which I only found 3 days into the unit. Found the materials here
We like the books, but I don't think they're great. The kids like the Roly Poly Spider and What a pair most. I can't tell why. Esp Roly Poly Spider. I don't think it's much content. Seems like the round spider is real cute.
We added Harold and the purple crayon (the giant garden) into the books, cos it's about bugs and ants!
