🐞Go Buggy for Insect Vocabulary and Writing Prompts for Kids

Get ready to buzz into the classroom and turn your most reluctant writers into busy bees with an engaging insect-themed writing activity!

This resource contains two primary components. First of all, we’ve put together an illustrated insect vocabulary word wall display. There are 24 vocabulary cards with bright images to help inspire your students to use academic vocabulary. Secondly. you’ll find a set of writing prompts. The writing prompts in this resource are a combination of narrative and informational texts. Prompts included are:

  • Write a story about a day when you were magically turned into one of the bugs below. Draw a picture when you finish.
  • Choose one insect to describe in your writing. Draw a picture when you finish.
  • Choose one of the insects. Write about where they live and where you can find them. Draw a picture when you finish.

This resource would be a perfect accompaniment to a Biological Sciences study of minibeasts.
