    ending report
    By teach4fun

    Clip to ScrapBook
    We do an insect / butterfly unit as well. We do a lot of things, but the one they love is the insect report at the end of the unit. We have them catch an insect (good thing is spiders are not ) and draw it on a paper and have them write a 5 sentence report on how they caught it, where they found it, and two interesting facts about their insect. The cool part is they bring in the insect in a SEALED container. (it is ok if it dies) and we release them in our gardens out side our classroom. Yes it may be gross to you, but it is the best day for the kids. They just love bringing in and sharing what they found and presenting their report to the class. I have half do it on one day and then we release and then the other half the next. We have had no problems (stings, escapes, or lost insects) in the 5 years I have been doing this project. I take a picture of each of them to send home with the report after I have graded it. .
    Have a great time, if you need anything else let me know
