Our kids love insects and spiders. So, I created a song that taught the difference in the number of legs between insects and spiders. It also introduces a little bit of basic math. The repetition of singing the song with different insects and spiders reinforces the learning, both in terms recognizing the difference between insects and spiders and memorizing the simple math problems.
I am providing you with a free printable you can use with your children or students. Enjoy!
If you try this song with your children or students, I’d love to hear about it. Have you done activities related to insect and spiders? Feel free to share in the comments.
