Bug Hunt

Have you ever noticed your child become fascinated by watching a bug? Encourage your child's curiosity and love of nature by looking for bugs in your backyard or at the park. Bring along a magnifying glass if you have one, and a notebook and pencil to record your findings. When you find a bug, examine it, talk about it, and write about it in your notebook. You’ll use a lot of new words when studying bugs – write those down too! Then, go to the library and check out some books about bugs.


SING

Big Bugs, Small Bugs

(To the tune of Frere Jacques)

Big bugs, small bugs,
Big bugs, small bugs,
See them crawl,
On the wall?

Creepy, creepy crawling,
Never, ever falling,
Bugs, bugs, bugs,
Bugs, bugs, bugs.
