Who’s eating these flowers? Why do the leaves have holes? Find out which insects are feasting at The Leaf Café!
Insects often dine on the leaves of trees and plants. How do we know? The leaves and flowers are filled with holes. Students research leaf eaters where they live and then create their own Leaf Café.
Once students have identified insects that consume leaves, ask them to create a leaf. With Crayola Scissors®, students cut a paper plate and fit the pieces together to form a leaf. Trim off any extra paper. Use a Crayola Glue Stick to hold plates together. With the extra pieces or another plate, cut a stem. Attach it to the leaf. Color the leaf and stem with Crayola Slick Stix. Such intense colors! They just slide on the plate! Try blending colors, too.
Students design their insects using Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils to draw the body outlines of dragonflies, beetles, caterpillars, red ants, or other insects on another paper plate. Color them with Slick Stix and cut them out.
Draw wings on wax paper. Gently color wings on both sides and cut them out. Glue wings to bodies. Glue bugs to the leaf. Punch holes to show where bugs ate the leaf.
Display insects in a classroom Insect Café. Students write a brief description of their insects and what types of nourishment these insects find in the Café.
