We love learning about ladybugs in the classroom! We have a bunch of fun and engaging ways we learn about them and even get to release real live ladybugs at the end.
We work together on creating our ladybug can, have are chart.
We learn about the ladybug life cycle and vocabulary. These all can be found in my Ladybug Activities No Prep Pack.
We make fun hats to review the life cycle.
We get to practice our math with our favorite ladybug mini erasers.
And my most favorite part is on Friday when we get to release ladybugs! I pick them up on Monday from our local ACE Hardware store so they can be in our classroom and we can observe them throughout the week.
If you can’t find these local in our area, this kit from insect lore is a great option. You get to watch them change from larve to pupa and then ladybug.
We release the ladybugs on Friday and it is definitely one of the most memorable days of the year for the kiddos. I hold the container and pass out ladybugs to whoever wants to hold them.
Such a fun experience for the kiddos!
