Finding the Shape of a Web
Students examine spider webs they find as they explore outside. They make T-chart of the shapes found in two different webs and draw them on geoboard paper. Next, they measure length and width of a spider's web before checking to see if the web contains any other insects. They write a paragraph predicting how the size of a web affects the number of insects that are found in it. Finally, the map a web of their own.
