    • CREEPY CRAWLIES A LESSON PLAN FOR TEACHERS Presentation produced by: Carlos Blanco García Ana Conejero Martínez Milagros Mª Frías Martínez
    • INTRODUCTION
      • This presentation is part of the Science curriculum aimed at children aged 8-9 (First year, Second Cycle of Primary School, according to the Spanish Official Education Curriculum).
      • We have chosen this unit as part of the “Diversity of Living Creatures” topic, included in the program for the school year.
      • The children study at a bilingual school in Madrid. We will conduct the lesson in English. Therefore, we will also aim at achieving a number of goals included in the Foreing Language curriculum for the same year.
    • We have divided this presentation in two parts:
      • Teacher’s notes, including background information and objetives of this unit.
      • The presentation aimed at children, including theory, basic information on Creepy Crawlies, and most importantly, activities for the children to help them become aware of the topic and practice different skills in English.
    • TEACHER’S NOTES
      • USEFUL BACKGROUD INFORMATION:
      • During the school year, the children have covered different science units which will help them understand what “Creepy Crawlies” are, such as:
        • Plants, herbs, bushes and trees.
        • Observation and understanding of Nature: looking after our environment.
        • Vertebrate and invertebrate animals.
        • The different nutritional and reproductive habits in both animals and plants.
      • ENGLISH LANGUAGE: The development of children’s language skills meets the objectives set in the annual curriculum and they have been building up science vocabulary accordingly
      • NATIONAL CURRICULUM LINKS:
        • Science (make your own key).
        • Mathematics.
        • Language (creative writing  “A day in the life of a millipede, snail, etc.”
        • Music (learn the insect song “Eensy Eensy Spider”).
        • Art (draw some creepy crawlies).
        • IT: Children will be working on a software program.
    • OUR OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of this lesson and following activities, the students should be able to:
      • Classify Creepy Crawlies according to their main characteristics: whether or not they live in a hard shell or they have a exoskeleton, they have legs, they have wings, etc.
      • Name five animals considered Creepy Crawlies.
      • Identify where Creepy Crawlies live and what they eat.
      • List new vocabulary.

        • They crawl and look creepy, they are small and sometimes scary.
        • Some have wings, some have dozens of legs, some are dangerous to humans… but they are all part of nature, as are we.
        • There are many different creepy crawlies but we will now show you eleven different animals that illustrate the wonderful variety we can find, you have probably met most of them !
    • Facts about spiders
      • Spiders have eight legs.

      • Spiders can live in the house or in the garden, in webs.
      • Spiders like to eat flies which they catch in their webs.
    • Facts about scorpions
      • Scorpions, like spiders, are members of the Arachnida family.
      • There are about 2000 species of scorpions.
      • Scorpions are viviparous.
      • Scorpions prefer to live in areas where the temperatures range from 20ºC to 37ºC (temperature in Spring-Summer).
    • Facts about snails
      • Snails have no legs, but they have one foot.
      • Their shells have different spiral patterns.
      • They live inside a shell which they carry on their back.
      • They like to eat vegetables like lettuce and cabbage.
    • Facts about worms
      • Earthworms have no legs.
      • They are brown and have rings around them.
      • They live in the ground.
      • They eat soil which then goes back into the earth and makes it soft.
    • Facts about ants
      • Ants are amazing for their size. If they all work together ants would be able to lift a really big lot.
      • Ants are social insects, they live together in huge colonies. Some are in piles of twigs; others are in wholes deep in the ground. And others are in hills of earth or sand.
    • Facts about beetles
      • Beetles use camouflage to protect themselves.
      • They try to look like part of their habitat (the place where they live).
      • You can find them under stones and bits of wood, on trees and bushes…
    • Facts about ladybugs
      • Ladybugs have 6 legs.
      • They have red wings with black spots on them.
      • Ladybugs live in gardens and parks in the summer. They hibernate in the winter.
      • They eat greenfly and other garden pests.
    • Facts about bees
      • Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants. They may be solitary or may live in various types of communities.
      • Bees produce honey.
      • Bees play an important role in pollinating flowering plants, and are the major type of pollinator in ecosystems that contain flowering plants.
    • Facts about caterpillars
      • Many caterpillars have the same colours as the plants on which they feed and may even have body parts that look like thorns of a plant.
      • Caterpillars produce silk.
      • Caterpillars are voracious feeders and many of them are considered pests in agriculture.
    • Facts about centipedes
      • There are many types of centipedes.
      • Also there are millipedes: they can have up to 300 pairs of legs and the eat any kind of plants.
      • Centepides normally live in damp places.
      • They have hard skin.
    • Facts about butterflies
      • A butterfly eats nectar. All butterflies have long tongue to eat the nectar.
      • Butterflies are not always big and able to fly. In fact, for half their life, they have millions of legs and crawl around. Remember: they were once caterpillars!
      • Butterflies have tiny scales on their wings.
    • SIMPLE WAYS TO IDENTIFY CREEPY CRAWLIES
      • Use a “key”.
      • Use a good wildlife book.
      • Count the legs and follow the simple rule:
        • 0 Legs = Worms, slugs and snails.
        • 6 Legs = Insects
        • 8 Legs = Spiders
        • 14 Legs = Woodlice
        • More than 14 legs = Centipides and Millipedes.
    • HOW SHOULD WE HANDLE CREEPY CRAWLIES?
      • WE MUST BE CAREFUL.
      • WE MUST BE GENTLE.
      • REMEMBER THEY ARE SMALL AND FRAGILE.
    • THE END THANK YOU
