Objectives

• Children will complete a worksheet by identifying numbers of body parts of bugs.

Suggested Activities

• Have children look at the bug habitat pictured on the website. Ask them how a bug's home is different a person's home. Then ask them to pretend they are a bug and draw what their bug home would look like.
