We have enjoyed learning with several bug learning activities over the years! Sometimes this has coincided with a local bug event, and it is always a fun theme in the Spring!
First I wanted to share the Inch by Inch Printable Measuring Activity I put together for Rainy Day Mum during her Storybook Summer series! I noted the irony of deciding on a measuring activity for a UK blog (I’m US-based) and that still makes me laugh today. It’s a neat activity because it absolutely can be done indoors or out.
We have done three full weeks of bug school so far, 10 Bug Tot Trays, 9 More Bug Tot Trays, and 15 Bug Preschool Trays. All are equally creepy and crawly (and cute, too.) As always none of this would happen without the wonderful free activities and ideas that fellow bloggers and teachers put out there. Thank you all!
