This month we have been learning about insects and I got the cutest idea from oneextradegree.blogspot.com . Today we spent the day talking about how insects use camouflage to protect them from other predators. We talked about how the insects may look like leaves on a tree or other things in their habitat. We also talked about how they have certain features that help to scare away predators. After we went did our smartboard lesson I had the students draw and cut out patterns of either a butterfly or a caterpillar. Then, they had to choose something in the classroom to camouflage their insect with. Here are some of the students examples. See if you can find the insects.
