Homeschool Minute - Parts Of A House Fly


This is what we have worked on today. For the life of me , I cannot find where I printed the cards from. It is parts of a house fly. I also have parts of an ant cards. Cannot remember where I found the printable, but we love them. PLEASE _ if someone knows where the printable is from post it in comments! 

Little Man loves doing "parts of" activities. He loves to see how things are made and how they work. We also found a dvd at the library to watch about insects and it had some information in it about flies and ants. Gave him some blank paper and he drew flies that he was pretending were monsters and stuff. He did some math - addition - with some tiny flies that I had gotten at Dollar Tree during Halloween. There are 25 in a bag of these little flies. They really look life-like - Big Bubby came in from work this morning and actually tried to swat one. Anyway we have 50 of them and he used them to do some addition. A lot of fun.
