Creepy Crawly Insects & Arachnids ~ Homeschool Lessons

Insects & Arachnids OH MY!

I bet you didn’t know this but bugs are a type of insect. Another fun fact, spiders are not insects, they are arachnids, which do not fall under the insect category.

On the blog you will find I’m sharing a ton of themed activities to help your kids learn with hands on fun. You can use just about every activity for Pre K and up! I’ll explain how to make each activity more challenging or less, based on your child, their age and their needs.
