About the Product:

Insects: Picture Book Play Series.

The units within the Picture Book Play Series are all book inspired and play based. They use easily accessible resources that are commonly found in most households.

The Insects unit is inspired by, and will work best with books such as, “Bugs Galore” (Peter Stein), “Ten Little Ladybugs” (Melanie Gerth), and “Mad About Minibeasts” (Giles Andreae), or any other picture book which features insects.

This unit provides approximately 2 weeks’ worth of learning experiences for 3-5yr olds. Each “day” should last no more than 20-30mins over the course of 10 days. The nature of the unit means the educator can easily combine days, or omit lessons and still find activities meaningful for the students. Extensions are provided where necessary for older students or those finding the initial activity easy.

Embedded in the learning activities are fine motor, gross motor, sensory and artistic opportunities.
