Spiderrific Learning Tools

by: Kevin J. Mitchell and Keith G. Diem

The Spiderrific curriculum unit is a great way to capitalize on student interest in spiders. This unit meets several national science standards, including characteristics of organisms, life cycles, and diversity and adaptations of organisms. In one activity, students design and build their own spider webs out of tape or string.
