We have been doing some amazing learning about insects and spiders this term.
We have been learning to be scientists, by ...
- drawing diagrams
- making models
- asking questions
- sorting and classifying
We looked in the gardens around school and at home and we peered through our magnifying glasses to get a close up look at the little critters. We have learnt to find the things that are the same and the things that are different between insects and spiders!
We know that spiders have 2 body parts - a cephalothorax and an abdomen, all spiders have 8 walking legs with joints, some spiders have 8 eyes and spiders have 2 palps ( pedipalps).
We know that insects have 3 body parts - a head, a thorax and an abdomen, all insects have 6 legs and 2 antennae and they have eyes.
Look at the fabulous diagrams that we have been drawing!
