Insects introduces students to the cricket and the ant. Students create habitats for these insects in their classroom. Students then investigate the cricket’s and ant’s home, food, preferences, body structure, and life cycle. Students identify the body parts necessary for an animal to be an insect and classify animals based on their characteristics. The skills of observing, discussing, describing, predicting, comparing, and classifying are used throughout the unit.
