In my public domain search I found three pictures of different insects that can be found locally. I would lead kindergarten students in a “close reading” of the images in a whole class setting before we read a story on different bugs in order to activate prior knowledge. My guiding questions would include:
- How are these bugs similar? How are they different?
- Have you ever seen any of these bugs in person?
- What kind of food do you think these insects eat?
- Can you think of any ways that these insects can help each other?
