This Spider Safari lesson plan also includes:

Today we are talking about one of the stealthiest, sneakiest, and most intriguing insects of all times, the spider. Learners will examine the predatory nature of these super bugs as they conduct a spider safari survey. Each child will observe a spider in their home or yard for 30 minutes, research that spider's particular habits and hunting strategies, and then present their findings to the class. This is a really fun learning idea that can be used with any unit on spiders or insects.
