The Spider Beside Her

Second graders are introduced to the characteristics of spiders. In groups, they compare and contrast spiders to different insects to discover spiders are not an insect at all. In groups, they create a model of a spider and discuss its role as a predator. Using this information, they identify the needs of all animals and their adaptations to meet them.
