Reinforce Ideas From Craft
Have fun crafting with Spiders. I know we always do!!! Crafting with spiders is a great way to teach about spiders. Basic teaching points may include that spiders are not insects. Spiders have eight legs. Spiders eat insects and spin webs. Consider reading books about spiders to reinforce what you've talked about and crafted!
