Our Termite printables are part of a collective notebooking/lapbooking resources called Alphabugs. This is a great way to work your way through the ABC’s while learning all about amazing creepy crawlies along the way. Our Alphabugs lapbooks are similar in content with some variations, but most contain the following resources: Anatomy, Life Cycle, Habitat, Family, Communication, Bible Verse, Copywork, Crafts, Activity suggestions and more. Additionally, we’ve included a Quilt Square for each insect so you can create a classroom quilt along the way. The quilt squares are a great way to include your younger children as they include a coloring page, handwriting practice, and scissor skills. See how to make a classroom quilt here.
We made these little termites with contact paper and
construction paper. First I let the children tear up bits
and pieces of cream and brown construction paper.
We talked about how termites eat wood and paper
and other various fibers. Then we stuck the bits of
paper to a sheet of contact paper (sticky side up)
Once they filled up the contact paper, we put another
sheet on top(sticky side down). Then I cut out termite
shapes from the contact paper, and the children
glued on legs. They turned out pretty cute and kind of
see-through like termites.
