Going through the book The History of Insects which is FREE to download/print at Gutenberg today we have been learning about Scorpions. With a great book from the library ‘Scorpions in the Dark by Doreen Gonzales’ & a couple of free printables we have all become a little more educated 🙂

I am not the world’s best artist but always create alongside the children so as to encourage them to do their best. With a FREE Sample: How to Draw a Scorpion from Dover Publications we all did our best in drawing.

This was not an easy project for the children but they persevered & I was very proud of their results.

In fact I laminated them for them so that their hard work did not get destroyed. (There is always someone around here with a pair of scissors cutting up paper – i.e Hannah and/or Caleb! Hannah started ‘attacking’ hers before I even knew what was happening!)

As you can see, our drawings were followed by a Coloring Page of a Scorpion from Education.com. I researched several coloring pages but liked this one best as the drawing is so vivid & some of the markings already colored in black making for a much better end result.

Another adVENTURE of FREE, fun learning 🙂
