Don't bug out!

I bought a couple of bags of bugs and creatures from a dollar store and made centers. I asked questions about the wingspan of a dragon fly, the length of a spider's left front leg, etc. and ask for measurements in cm, mm, and inches. Keep those little hands busy and minds interested. I also included the answers so it could be self checking.

Could use the same idea with different objects such as hot wheels, fast food kid's meals prizes. If students do good, reward them with a few minutes of play time with the toys. Just an idea. Good luck!
