Bats and Spiders!

We have spent the week discussing bats and spiders. We found that many of us do not like these animals. However, we did learn that there are some good things about them. During our internet searches, book reads, and discussions, this is what we learned:

  • Bats are not birds (LN)
  • Bats can fly (LD)
  • Bats eat bugs (BF)
  • Bats stay away from people (LL)
  • Bats are the only flying mammal (DS)
  • Bats can hang upside down (OW)
  • Bats are not flying rats (NH)
  • Bats can fly into houses (RN)
  • Spiders hide from people (KC)
  • Bats do not drink human blood (EG)
  • There are more than a thousand different kinds of bats (HJ)
  • Spiders and bats are afraid of us (AP)
  • Some spiders can be nice (LN)
  • Some spiders hibernate in the Winter (LL)
  • Some spiders hide in houses (LN)
  • Spiders have 8 legs (all of us)
  • Bats can climb because of their 8 legs (OW)
  • I like bats and spiders (LW)

The kids then created a crayon/watercolor contrast of bats and spiders at night. The kids made this a great unit. We can't wait to discuss and explore pumpkins next week!
