Outdoor Hour #26

Ladybugs were a fun theme that the kids liked a lot. We saw lots of ladybugs in Finland last summer but haven't really seen any over here. We looked at different kinds of ladybugs on the internet and inspired by the images the kids produced the ladybugs above.

We also talked about their life cycle as well as aphids in general. The kids were amused by the relationship of aphids and ants.

The ladybugs below are about 20 cm in diameter and we stuck them on the wall by the blackboard in our library/study room.

These are very cute projects. I think it is great that you use the internet to view things you don't have in person.

Thanks for sharing your link.

Thanks! I find internet really useful especially as I like that my kids learn about the Northern Hemisphere nature as well.
