A great skill for students to practice is comparing and contrasting attributes of various organisms. With each insect group, students can answer yes or no to attributes such as
- Does it have wings?
- Does it eat plants?
- Does it eat other insects?
- Does it make noises, such as chirping or buzzing?
Not all of the questions will be able to be answered just from reading the book. Students can fill in ones they are unsure of with question marks and do further research to find the answers. Some boxes might need to be filled in with the word “sometimes” instead of “yes” or “no.”
This activity can be done as a whole class or in pairs. If you would like to use a premade attribute worksheet, click here for PDF
