Explorations of Living Things

Insects make a great topic of study for preschoolers because during the right time of the year, it is easy to observe the habitats, behaviors, and life cycle of insects up close.
Here are some concepts you might what to help your child learn about insects:

Insects are a class of animals with three pairs of legs, a body segmented into three parts (head, thorax, and abdomen), compound eyes, and one pair of antennae. Most insects have wings. Insects represent the largest group of animals on Earth, and are found in nearly everywhere on our planet. Insects go through a life cycle that includes hatching from an egg, a larva stage, a pupa stage, and finally an adult stage.
