    Draw an Insect
    By Sue W.

    After the kids were familiar with parts of an insect we played a "Draw an Insect" game. Each pair or team had die (single dice) or a spinner with 6 numbers and a list:

    1. head
    2. thorax,
    3 abdomen
    4. antenna or wing
    5. eye or mouth
    6. leg

    Each kid had a piece of paper. When a player tossed or spun a number they could draw one of the appropriate part/parts. If they already had a part, head for example, they missed a turn. They had to get two antennae, 6 legs and so on. The first to finish their insect was the winner. This is fun and reinforces vocabulary and facts.
