My old Google account reached its' limit, so I lost a lot of images for my blog that were saved there when I deleted it. I'm actively working to replace all my images to each post starting from most recent and working my way back. I also hope to update bad links if time permits.

1st Grade Insects and Bugs

I shared what we we used for studying animals in this post, but I also wanted to share what we are using for our study of insects and bugs.  We are still using Considering God's Creation by Eagle's Wings and utilizing lessons 13-15 and my son is loving the worksheets!  We have a plethora of books thanks to Scholastic, which was a good thing because the library has been closed for a month due to the pandemic and they'll be closed for the next month too and maybe even longer.  I'm so glad I invested over the past 12 years in Scholastic books and others.  I'm also utilizing the life cycle cards I got from Scholastic a few years ago that pertain to insects and a set of insect flashcards I think I bought from the Dollar store many years ago.  Finally, we got live insect kits from Insect Lore - ladybugs and butterflies - to watch them go through metamorphosis.

We utilized the Magic School Bus DVDs we own and Zach watched the insect-related episodes: In a Beehive, Spins a Web, Gets Ants in Its Pants and Butterfly & the Bog Beast.
