Insect Habitat-- Lesson Plan-- 3rd Grade
Third graders worked together to make an insect habitat on large butcher paper. They had been studying habitats in their Science class.
We used Model Magic, beads, pipe cleaners and corrugated paper to make the insects and oil pastels to color them.
The kids did a great job, but I'm not sure how I feel about Model Magic... we've been having a tough time getting the pieces to stay together. Some of the heads and body parts had to be hot glued back together. If I did this project again, we might just make the insects from painted papers.
