For your privacy, Lakeshore will not be sending your information to any third party.
Students will enjoy putting their own creative spin on these fun-to-make spider webs!
This activity is appropriate for:
preschool - 2nd grade / 3 - 7 years
You will need:
- Spider template
- Spider poem reproducible
- Superbright Sulphite Construction Paper - 9" x 12" (various colors)
- White or silver yarn
- Small paper plates (black)
- Help-Yourself Glue Tubes
- Safety Scissors
- Reproduce the spider template. For younger students, you may want to cut out the spiders.
- Reproduce the spider poem reproducible and cut out one poem for each student.
- Cut the yarn into various lengths, with none longer than the diameter of the plates.
- Provide each student with a black paper plate, glue, several lengths of yarn and a sheet of construction paper.
- Show students how to make overlapping lines of glue on the plate and how to place the yarn along the glue to form a web. Encourage students to use as many or as few lines as they desire in their design.
- Invite students to color their spider. Have students glue the spiders to their webs.
- Have students glue their plate to the top half of the construction paper. Then have them write their name at the top.
- Give each student a copy of the spider poem. Have students follow along as you read the poem aloud.
- Ask students to think of an animal that a spider can catch in its web (such as a bug, fly, gnat or flea). Write the words on chart paper. Prompt them to write the word on the blank or dictate the word for you to write.
- Have students glue the poem to the construction paper, below the web. Display the completed webs on a bulletin board titled “Spooky Spiders!”
