Discovering Insects


One warm summer day when I was five years old, I climbed under-neath a bush to play. To my surprise, I saw hundreds of ladybugs crawling over the moist ground under the bush. I had discovered “a ladybug garden party”. I watched these wonderful insects for a long time. What an exciting discovery I had made in my Gram’s garden that day!


As you enjoy your summer vacation, take time to slow down and discover the world of insects. Being an insect detective and searching for amazing insects can be really fun. Sit beneath a tree, beside a pond, or by a flower garden. You may find a ladybug, grasshopper, ant, or even a stick bug. Whatever you find, look at its shape, color, legs, and eyes...


Read today's Let's Make It! to discover more about Insects and follow the steps to learn how to draw a Ladybug! Have fun!
