"Label the Parts" Printable Grasshopper Photograph

Label the Grasshopper Printable Activity Sheet from www.daniellesplace.com

Label a real life, up-close photograph of a grasshopper.

Here a great activity for home schools.

After labeling the grasshopper and doing research about them hide the picture of the grasshopper and ask your child to draw the grasshopper from memory.

Then have your child compare his drawing to the picture of the real grasshopper. Ask him if he forgot any parts, or if he could have improved on his drawing once he compared it to the picture of the grasshopper. This activity will help your child remember the grasshopper's part and help him to be more observant of other insects.

This printable sheet is available to members only.
