1-2-3 Come Do Some Spider-ific Activities With Me!
I guess a lot of people must be doing a spider theme this month, as spider activities have been my #1 download this past week. It's certainly a nice alternative if your school doesn't celebrate Halloween.
I have some quicky spider activities for you today. The Spider Web Roll & Color game will help students review math skills in a fun way. Younger students choose a partner and take turns rolling a dice. Whatever number they roll, they color in a section of their web. I made the spider webs small, so coloring won't be so time consuming.
Older students roll 2 dice and add them together. I've also included a web worksheet where children write down their equations. There's also a prediction sheet. Students take a guess of how many individual sections there are on the web, and then figure out the correct answer. Click on the link to view/download the Spider Web game.
Finally, the Speaking of Spiders packet is chock full of writing activities and includes a venn diagram for comparing spiders and bats.
Since many of my Y5's think that a spider is an insect, I also made a Venn diagram where students compare spiders with insects. Venn diagrams are a terrific way to practice comparison & contrast.
There's a Spiders can... worksheet, as well as a spider KWL and several fact versus opinion activities.
Involve some science and have students label their spider. I've included a fact sheet that will help explain the parts of a spider.
Also included is a mini spider report - graphic organizer, as well as a spider acrostic poem page + 2 adjective and verb practice pages.

If you also do the 1-2-3 Count With Me easy reader booklets, based on a 10 frame, click on the link for the 1-2-3 Count Spiders With Me FREEBIE.
