Are Spiders Insects ?
Today has been a rather hectic day. Parent teacher conferences until 9:30 and lots of other things on my mind. But that didnt slow our progress of our BUG unit. The popular question today was are SPIDERS insects ? Do you know ? The answer is no. They are arachnids. Some differences between a spider and an insect is that insects usually have wings, spiders do not. Insects have 6 legs. Spiders have 8 ! And the stunner of the day that we researched on the computer ( did you know that is a kindergarten readiness skill ? Knowing that technology can be used in the classroom and other places to find out stuff! ) We found out that SPIDERS HAVE 8 EYES! 8 EYES and 8 LEGS! They are EQUAL!!!!
