Insect Art and Z for Zoo

This week's preschool theme was insects. We collected insects, learned about insect body parts and their diets, and discovered how to tell the difference between insects and other creepy-crawlies.

We collected leaves, twigs, acorns, and chestnuts at the park to make insect collages. Can you spot the ants, butterflies, dragonflies, stag beetles, and rhinoceros beetles? (Click on the photo to see it larger.)

Insects have antennae as you can see from the butterfly and the bee pictured here.

Just look at those beautiful butterflies.

The letter of the week in afternoon preschool was Z. The children built a zoo for their animals, being careful to keep predators and pray away from each other.
