Insects in Leaves and Grass Sensory Bin

We explored insects that live in the ground, insects that collect nectar and insects that live near water. The last category that I could think of is insects that live in leaves and grass: caterpillars, crickets, praying mantises.

I wrapped little caterpillars in green yarn to imitate a cocoon. My daughter really enjoyed unwrapping them. I told her names of trees from which I collected leaves and pointed out that all leaves are of different size and shape.
