Finished up an insect unit today and did some Firefly activities.

Had to read my 2 favorite firefly books. These are must have!
Leo the Lightning Bug (with Audio CD) [Hardcover] and The Very Lonely Firefly (Penguin Young Readers, L2)
We also counted up some fireflies and put them in jars…
We made this firefly craft. Band-aids were used as the body. Add glow in the dark puffy paint for the fireflies little light. Used colored band-aids or colored tape to make an X for the wings over the body. Use chalk on black paper to draw a night sky. I wrote a little poem that can be attached to this craft – it is the last page of this file.
Mmm… We ended the unit with a buggy snack. Mud and worms! The mud is chocolate pudding with crushed oreos as the dirt. The worms are gummies! Kids of course loved these!
Made a little book found here free to download.
