Mrs. Irelandís Terrific Twos Study of Ladybugs

The study of ladybugs fit in well with our science unit on life cycles. After researching lifecycles on many different types of animals the students used Venn diagrams to compare the ladybug life cycle to animals such as that of a frog, butterfly, bird or earthworm, and then wrote fact and comparison sentences. We have been working on our research skills this spring.
