This is "Harry." He is a Goliath tarantula specimen!
The kids absolutely loved getting up close to see every detail.
We used a magnifying glass to really check out the spider's parts. Harry even has a purple tint to him when viewed up close in the right light.
Then, my little scientists drew Harry themselves.
For our spider snack, I put a sign up sheet on the door about a week ahead of time. Parents provided mini chocolate doughnuts for the body, stick pretzels for the legs, some frosting for "glue" for the eyes, which were M&Ms.
This was a great ending to a really fun unit. The kids learned so much!
Now it's on to all things Thanksgiving. Here's a little turkey freebie! Enjoy!
I would be oh-so-thankful if you would follow my site and leave me a note!
