Red Class- Creepy Crawlies! Week 6

Good Morning Red Class.I hope that you are all well!

Welcome back to another exciting week of learning about Spiders and Bees.

Spiders may be found in trees, on plants and in the blades of grass in your

gardens. They live almost anywhere. All spiders have eight legs, no wings or

antennae and spiders can have up to eight eyes. They are not insects because

they have eight legs and insects have six legs. Spiders are Arachnids.

They eat small insects like flies and mosquitoes and most spiders produce silk

which is used to create spider webs and capture prey.

Bees are insects. They have six legs and four wings. Bees can be found all

over the world. There are Bumble bees and Honey bees. Bees are beneficial

because they provide us with honey.
