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.

I was at a crossroads trying to think of a new… interesting… active way to introduce and teach the different types of economic systems. I turned to Lesson Planet and entered “Economic Systems” into the search tab and was inundated with resources and lesson plans and ideas… the kids loved the lesson I modified for them and still ask when we are going to do another lesson like that “Paper Airplane Company” one. Thanks Lesson Planet.
