CLARK, NJ - At Valley Road School, Ms. Krick’s first graders celebrated spiders! First, the class made a bar graph to see how many students had arachnophobia. Then they set out to learn all they could about spiders. They compared spiders and insects and created spider diagrams. They also made spider hats, anatomically correct with eight legs and 2, 4, 6, or 8 eyes. The class studied different kinds of spiders, too, and discovered that although all spiders make silk, not all spin webs. When the first graders tried spinning their own webs they recognized how talented these creatures are.
