Spiders - Lesson 2: Spiders Have Special Characteristics
ACTIVITY: Spiders Have Eight Legs
Students identify spiders by counting eight legs (four on each side) on animal
Each student has a copy of a picture of different animals, as below.
- Working in pairs, each student uses his/her picture to identify the
spiders by counting eight legs and putting an "x" on the animal that is a spider.
If the student does not put an "x" by a picture he/she explains to his/her
partner why it is not a spider.
Students classify picture cards of animals into two groups - spiders or those
that are not spiders.
