Our study for the next few weeks will be spiders! AH! Now, I personally am not the biggest fan of spiders, although I do not kill them, I take them outside, but still yuck! So I am braving through and we are going to learn about spiders. We will compare and contrast spiders and insects as well as learn their body parts and what they use them form. We will talk about habitats, how they get food (different from what they might think!) and other fun facts!
You will notice when their nonfiction writing comes home, it says "insects" and we will talk about why that's wrong and b/c that was the best paper to guide our notes ha ha!
We will also do an opinion piece about if they would kill a spider and why? They have to support their opinion with reason and facts. This will be our first bit on opinion writing so it'll be a good base line for me to see where they are at. Plus it'll be a fun share out!
Get ready to be scared, grossed out or maybe pleasantly surprised with some these spider facts!
