More Preschool Bug Activities!

Children need real experiences to build optimal foundations for learning! We provided real crickets, meal worms and red worms to look at, talk about and write about!
I realized after I took this picture of friends at the table of worms that it showed the beauty of mixed-age environments. The children exploring the worms with tweezers and magnifying glasses are two, three, four and five years old and they
discussed and explored for almost 30 minutes together!

A writing table with different writing tools, bug stickers, paper and staplers to make homemade books , etc
Working with the different ages, some children told their bug/insect stories and some wrote their own!
