Brave enough to teach your students about spiders this fall or Halloween? This spider post includes a ton of activities - science, non-writing writing, life cycle, art project, and more to engage and entertain students in their learning about spiders!

Other arachnids include scorpions, ticks, mites, and harvestmen. Perhaps this will clarify the identity of that “thing” crawling around on your kitchen floor.
