Identify different bugs, and teach their names. An idea is to make cards with different bug and insect pictures on them. Make sure the card clearly shows the bugs features such as: number of legs, eyes, and colors.
Bugs to teach Children:
Bugs that fly
Bugs that swim
Bugs that dig
After making the cards, to promote identification of insects, prepare a scavenger hunt. After showing the child the bug on the card, have the child look for the bug outside. The girls saw a worm the other day in the play yard, They were so amused and thought the worm was "so cute". Then we let the worm go and put it somewhere safe where it wouldn't be stepped on. It is very important to teach children to have respect for the environment and their surroundings.
