Game: Insect Relay Race



Divide the children into two teams. At the start of the game, discuss how various insects move differently depending on their body shape, wings and feet. Show the children the pictures you selected and talk about how each insect moves and demonstrate.

  • Grasshoppers (make short hops)
  • Flea (makes long jumps)
  • Cockroach (scurries quickly)
  • Bee (flies vigorously)
  • Caterpillar (crawls slowly)
  • Butterflies (flies with graceful wings)
  • Ant (runs on all fours quickly)
Girls will run to the pile of pictures, pick up the top card and return to the line up by moving like the insect on the card. Which ever team has all their member sitting down first wins.
