3rd Annual Family Science Project

Dear Parents,

Over the next 2 weeks we will be learning about insects/butterflies.  We are really excited to get this unit kicked off on Monday.  For the first part of the week we will be looking at the structure of different insects and compare and contrast their body structures.  For the rest of the week we will specifically be studying the ant and bee.  We will be discussing habitat, insect job, predator, diet, etc.  We also have some fun insect math activities and great writing prompts planned too.  On Friday, June 12th all the kindergarten classes will be holding a small science fair for each of the other kindergarten classes.  The other classes will be walking around viewing each other’s chosen insect.  Your child will have a chance to talk about their research and findings.  So here is where you come in…you and your child research 1 insect (not spider) and create a small poster board showing and describing his/her insect.  Here is what you need to include:

– Picture or drawing of insect

– habitat

– diet

– prey and predator

– job of insect

– 2 interesting facts


Have FUN with this science project!  Get creative with what the presentation will look like.  Also, we ask that your child write everything.  (Remember that we spell phonetically in kindergarten) ☺
