I am a new Kindgergarten teacher in a public school located in the south Bronx. I am looking to start a ladybug study with my students, and what better way than with real live ladybugs!
This Ladybug Lodge will give students a real life experience. We will be learning about ladybugs through books, art, and with your help, real ladybugs. I hope that learning about real ladybugs will generate enthusiasm among my students for these colorful insects. I would like for them to observe live ladybugs and posters of ladybugs to learn about their behavior and body structure. As the children look at the posters and make paper ladybugs, they will find out that ladybugs have 6 legs, 2 antennae, 2 flying wings, and 2 cover wings. They will take part in dramatic and role-playing activities to show some of the ways ladybugs protect themselves from birds.
I also hope that my students will learn about symmetry in their bodies and in a ladybug's body. They will continue their exploration through a variety of art projects. One such project would involve the children creating symmetrical spots on ladybug drawings, which provides an opportunity to practice counting skills as well as to make guesses about numbers.
If you choose to donate towards the cost of this Ladybug Lodge, you will help our science center become a popular and enriching one. Thank you.
The cost of a Ladybug Lodge is $30, including shipping and disposable camera.
