Kinder / Preschool / ELC Lesson Plan – Lesson Plan on Insects (Montessori Australia), Montessori philosophy

We currently have this lesson plan on Insects in Australia on our waitlist to be built. Join our waitlist for this Montessori plan (link in navigation).

Understanding insects is important for preschoolers as it helps them develop an appreciation for the natural world and the role insects play in our ecosystem. It also helps them develop observation and critical thinking skills.

A preschool learning environment that focuses on insects could include a garden area where children can observe and interact with insects in their natural habitat. The classroom could also have books, posters, and models of insects for children to explore and learn from.

Potential preschool lesson plan ideas could include a bug hunt where children search for insects in the garden, a sensory activity where children touch and feel different types of insects, and a science experiment where children observe the life cycle of a butterfly or ladybug. Children could also create their own insect models using art materials and learn about the different parts of an insect through hands-on activities
