Make an insect calendar to learn about different insects, and keep track of the entire year.
- Illustrated books or Internet sites about insects
- Crayons or colored markers
- Single hole puncher
- A piece of construction paper about 10.5 x 13 inches
- Printable Calendar
- Use books or Internet sites about insects to help you draw (or print from your computer) an insect or group of insects for each month of the year.
- Below each picture write a caption or a sentence about the insect.
- Paper-punch a hole at the top of the construction paper.
- Staple the finished calendar pages onto the construction paper, just below the hole.
- Each day write the name or draw a picture of a bug you saw in the box for that day on the calendar.
- Hang your calendar for all to enjoy.
Browse the hotlist to find pictures, drawings, and information about all kinds of insects.
