Snails, slugs, cockroaches, ladybugs, oh my!
We started out this lesson by showing the kids a snail that I had found on a leaf. The kids liked the snail, and wanted totake turns holding him, we named him Harold.
We marched around the garden on a bug hunt. I played a game with my group where we picked our favorite pose, and stood in that position to count all the bugs we could see. Some saw 9, some saw 29!
We talked about how we felt about the bugs, and how the plants probably feel about the bugs. We learned that some bugs are good for the plant and some aren't. We searched through the compost and saw cockroaches and spiders and creepy crawlers that most of us hadn't seen before.
