This popular unit takes off from childhood delight with ladybugs to present key science and math concepts relating to animal life and ecology. Children learn about ladybug body structure and symmetry, life cycle, defensive behavior, and foods. Math is an integral part of this unit and role-playing is interwoven in the activities. Two colorful posters of ladybugs are included. In “Ladybugs Rescue the Orange Trees,” children learn important lessons about the environmental role of ladybugs and the interdependence found in nature. The use of live ladybugs is optional.
