Kindergarten just completed their bug jars. I normally do this project with second grade; however, a Kindergarten teacher saw my example and requested that I do this project with her class. I gave the students a jar template and they traced it on grey paper. After cutting out the jar, we added a lid with holes for our bugs to breathe. We talked about different objects outside that we can drop into our jar and what bug/insects we can add to that environment. I try to have them take up as much space inside the jar as possible. We have bugs that crawl and fly. We traced all pencil lines with a black crayola marker and colored with construction paper crayons, which is one of my favorite medias to use. They turn out so bright and cheerful! The kids love making a big list on the board of all the bugs and insects we can name.
