What is an arthropod? What is the difference between an insect and an arachnid? What are spinnerets and who uses them? This exciting lesson teaches students to distinguish between insects and arachnids based on their physical characteristics. Kids learn what arachnids have in common and see a live tarantula up close.
For ages 4 years old and older.
