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:

Preparation

  1. Reproduce the spider template. For younger students, you may want to cut out the spiders.
  2. Reproduce the spider poem reproducible and cut out one poem for each student.
  3. Cut the yarn into various lengths, with none longer than the diameter of the plates.

Directions

  1. Provide each student with a black paper plate, glue, several lengths of yarn and a sheet of construction paper.
  2. 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.
  3. Invite students to color their spider. Have students glue the spiders to their webs.
  4. Have students glue their plate to the top half of the construction paper. Then have them write their name at the top.
  5. Give each student a copy of the spider poem. Have students follow along as you read the poem aloud.
  6. 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.
  7. Have students glue the poem to the construction paper, below the web.
  8. Display the completed webs on a bulletin board titled “Spooky Spiders!”
