Lesson Content
Whats With the Wings?
Objectives- What are you
teaching?
(Student-centered: What will
students know and be able to do
after this lesson? Include the
ABCDs of objectives: action,
behavior, condition, and degree of
mastery, i.e., "C: Given a sentence
written in the past or present tense,
A: the student B: will be able to re-
write the sentence in future tense D:
with no errors in tense or tense
contradiction (i.e., I will see her
yesterday.)."
Note: Degree of mastery does not
need to be a percentage.)


The students will know the various parts of an insect and why they have wings by
constructing their own insect.






What background knowledge is
necessary for a student to
successfully meet these
objectives?
Example: Need to know rules to
play a game, how to work with
others, etc...

The students will need to have experience with crafting (ie. taping, gluing, and coloring).
They will also need to have a general idea about insects.

Act as if you needed a substitute to
carry out the lesson for you.)

3. Ask: What are some characteristics of insects? (open discussion).
4. Review that insects have wings, 2 antennae, 6 legs, and a body (which is also
known as the thorax).
5. Ask: What might insects use their wings for?
-Flying
6. Tell them: Unlike our arms, insect wings have no muscles or bones in them! To
fly, insects squeeze and flex muscles in their thorax to move their wings.
7. Show the students pictures of insects that have wings.
8. Hand out the materials for the craft as they examine the pictures of the insects.
9. First, have the students color the wing cut outs with the markers.
10. After they are done coloring the wings, have them cut out their wings.
11. Slide the wings through the slits of the tube.
12. Tape to connect the tops of the wings to the tube.
13. Gently squeeze the tube to move the wings!
14. Use pipe cleaners to create antenna (2) and legs (6) and markers to create
designs on the thorax!
15. Have the students write in their writing journal about what they learned about
insects.
16. Collect to assess their comprehension of the lesson.

Meeting your students needs as
people and as learners
If applicable, how does this lesson connect to the interests and cultural backgrounds of
your students?

Because insects are located throughout the world, the students will be able to relate back
to a familiar insect that they know has wings.

If applicable, how does this lesson connect to/reflect the local community?

In the community, there are insects everywhere you look, especially in Florida.
Mosquitos, dragonflies, butterflies, and lady bugs are just a few of the popular insects
that live here.

How will you incorporate the arts (visual, dance and movement, music, drama,
multimedia)?

The students will be creating their own insect using tubes, pipe cleaners, and cut outs of
wings to watch their wings flap.

Materials
(What materials will you use? Why
did you choose these materials?
Include any resources you used.
This can also include people!)

Cardstock
Markers
Paper towel tubes
Pictures or models of insects with wings
Pipe cleaners
Scissors
Tape
Teacher Tool: Insect Wings cut out

I chose these materials so the students would be able to physically create their very own
insect.
