We are starting to enjoy some unit studies on insects... starting with the lady bug. Today we discussed the anatomy of a lady bug and learned the basic parts. We enjoyed some reading on lady bugs and found some really wonderful online resources including youtube videos that were pretty good. Holly created a cute little life cycle wheel of the lady bug. Then to finish off our school day we headed out to the garden in search of lady bugs. I'll admit, I was a bit disappointed as we usually find plenty... but today only three. However, it was great to find them and really take a look knowing the parts of a lady bug. It made for some great fun!
