Over the past few weeks, we have been observing a large variety of spiders and their respective webs on our nature outings. As the webs are relatively complex, the kids haven’t yet felt comfortable truly sketching them in their journals. I thereby present a photo essay of some of our favorites.
Sheet Web ?
Funnel Web (observed in 2009)
Unknown Spider … no web nearby
Black & Yellow Garden Spider on Orb Web
Tunnel web next to a very interesting fungus
My kiddos said, “Mom, when are we going to do a fungus challenge? Barb?
It doesn’t show in the picture, but there was web within the circle
Garden spiders observed cooperatively building a web … or so we presume.
An orb web captured on paper in hopes of observing more details and integrating into our math curriculum.
