LESSON 1: Spiders ! Scary or Nice?
Humans often do not understand spiders because spiders look scary. Counting and graphs help us show information.

Spiders are animals that look like insects but are not, because spiders have 8 legs and 2 body parts. We can order numbers by using the idea of "one more than."

Spiders catch and eat their prey and are also caught and eaten by their enemies.

We can find spiders everywhere in the world because they have adapted themselves to living in different environments.
