Your little one participated in yet another fun sensory activity! Using styrofoam as our base, white web material, sticks, and plastic bugs, your little one created their very own spider habitat!
We began this activity with a discussion and review of the spiders and other bugs that we have been learning about. We then talked about where these creatures lived.
Our discussion concluded with a review of the new vocabulary that we have been learning, such as insect, web, arachnid, antenna, web, and silk.
Your little arachnid enthusiast then happily constructed the perfect living space for his spider friends.
After a while, everyone wanted to add insects to the webs so that their spiders could eat!!
This was the definite favorite for the week, as your little one applied their understanding of various vocabulary and scientific concepts.
I bet our daughter liked this as she has a pet tarantula.
