5 Great collection!
Hi Laureen, Your collection looks so fun and resourceful! You clearly showed an emphasis for ladybugs which I imagine your lesson is mainly about but I love how you included a variety of different insects not just one type of insect in your collection. It is a great strategy to compare and contrast these bugs. Your collection provides many strategies to teach this topic including how to teach about insect outdoors, which is very creative and fun. All around you created a great collection that included a Venn diagram to compare different insects, the relationship between plants and insects, and a load of information about lady bugs. I'm sure that if you used these resources for your lesson plan that you made that it came out awesome!
