Listen to a book about insects.[edit | edit source]

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Story by Eric Carle

Say three things you learned about insects.[edit | edit source]

Insects have:

  1. Head, Thorax, and Abdomen
  2. 6 legs
  3. 2 antennas

Play an action game about insects.[edit | edit source]

Instead of playing a game we sing the Insect's body parts(Tune: “Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes”)

Insect Body Parts

Head (Point to head.)

Thorax (Point to chest)

Abdomen – abdomen! (Point to stomach)

Head, thorax, abdomen – abdomen!

And eyes (Point to eyes.)

And mouth (Point to mouth.)

And antennae, two (Stick 2 fingers up)

Six legs (Wiggle 3 fingers on each hand.)

And there’s an insect for you!

(Leave off a verse each time you sing and hum.)

Make an insect craft.[edit | edit source]
