FREE insect lesson plans for first graders

Is your first grader studying insects? Then today’s post is for you! There are some great resources for learning all about bugs, but today I’m focusing on a specific set of FREE lesson plans on insects for first graders. Don’t miss out on these freebies!


Insects are fun to study, especially if you’re able to get hands on! Kids in first grade are all about hands-on activities and getting dirty. 🙂 At least my first grader is. She isn’t much for reading a book then filling out a worksheet. She wants to observe, color, cut, and do fun worksheets. Be sure to remember what type of learner your student is when selecting a lesson plan to download!
