Insects-our unit study

We are studying insects this week.  Daddy’s Tractor had a bug learning center idea. I printed off her free clock and time cards and then went from there.

I got the game, wheel, and butterfly life cycle from Enchanted Learning.

We made butterfly life cycle mobiles.  They each made eggs, larva, pupa, and an adult.
