Insects, Arachnids and Arthropods Oh My!
Spring is here and third grade students focused on Insects, Arachnids and Arthropods this month! We learned the facts about each one and examined their characteristics. Each student chose their favorite creature and drew it with pencil. After determining the natural habitat, the students drew the habitat around their creature. The next step was to cover each pencil line with tinted glue to create a textural outline. After the glue dried, third graders used chalk pastel to color their images, and then with a tissue they smudged the pastel into the paper. No two were alike!
