Kindergarten / ECE Lesson Plan – Lesson Plan on Insects (Montessori New Zealand), Montessori philosophy

We currently have this lesson plan on Insects in New Zealand 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. Additionally, teachers could incorporate hands-on activities such as bug hunts, insect crafts, and experiments to further engage children in learning about insects.

Potential preschool lesson plan ideas could include learning about the life cycle of insects, identifying different types of insects, exploring the role of insects in pollination, and discussing the importance of protecting insect habitats. Teachers could also incorporate language and literacy skills by reading books about insects and encouraging children to write or draw about their observations and experiences with insects. Overall, incorporating insects into preschool education can provide a fun and engaging way for children to learn about the natural world and develop important skills
