Creepy Crawlies: Fun with Insects!

{image found on Eric Carle’s blog}

“In a recent study, biologists were asked what influenced them as children to become scientists. Overwhelmingly, the most common answer was “making an insect collection.”’ (quote taken from this site.)

Isn’t that awesome? Something so simple could inspire your child for life!

And summer is the perfect time to study, inspect and collect these creepy crawy creatures that God gave us!

My absolute favorite books to use while studying bugs are Eric Carle books!! They are just so fun, creative and inspirational…be sure to save some time to create your own Eric Carle art!! Collage art is so fun and each piece always turns out so unique!!

Homeschool Share has an Insect Unit based on Eric Carle’s books! Loads of fun!
