June 1st – 5th

Hello Everyone! We hope you had a great weekend!

This week we’re going to learn about one of Ms. Caroline’s favourite insects, the dragonfly!

Engage

Have a look at these pictures. Notice the beautiful colours and patterns on their wings!

Now ask someone to help you read the poem below:

Dragonflies are insects, which means, like bees and ladybugs, they have wings, 6 legs, an abdomen and a thorax. Look at the picture here, then draw your own! Remember to label the parts.

Share

Look at these yummy dragonfly snacks! What can you find in your kitchen to make a dragonfly snack? Send us a picture.

Here’s an idea for an easy dragonfly art project you can make at home, using your handprint for the wings. You need paper, glue, markers or paint, and a popsicle stick (if you have one). If you don’t have wiggly eyes at home, draw the eyes on, or cut some from colourful paper. We can’t wait to see how they turn out!

Here are some tricky insect worksheets for you to try. One is a wordsearch, and one is a quiz. Have fun!
