Following preschoolers' interest in spiders, their webs and their hunting behavior we made a huge spider web outdoor. "spider web is sticky" some friends commented. Friends pretended that they are different kinds of bugs : "I am firefly", "I am a butterfly", "I am an ordinary fly" they said and pretended to be stuck in the web...

We talked about spider's way of hunting...some friends volunteered to be lunch or dinner for the spider and we spun a web around them to show them how it works!!  They helped each other to free themselves from hungry spider's trap!!
