The insect we drew today was an ant! Here's how we did it!
Step One: Place your paper landscape. Draw an "sleeping" oval. This is the HEAD.
Step Two: Under the sleeping oval, draw a "standing" oval. This is the THORAX.
Step Three: Draw an upside down "tear drop" under the thorax.
Step Four: Add three legs to each side of the thorax.
Step Five: Add ANTENNAE to the top of the head. These are the feelers so make them curve down a little.
Step Six: Add two eyes. We are looking down on the insect so we will not see the mouth. Add stripes to the abdomen.
Step Seven: Label each part. (I do this one at a time as some of the words are long and the children will need time to write them.)
We used markers to color our insects.
