A female spider can lay up to 3,000 eggs. Many species then protect the eggs in a silk sac, which is then attached to the web so the mother can protect them. Once the eggs hatch, spiderlings emerge, resembling smaller versions of adults. They eventually leave the web to grow into adult spiders and repeat the process.
This set helps children learn about the spider’s life cycle, from egg to egg sac to spiderlings to adult spider. Highly detailed and scientifically accurate, this set makes a great teaching tool for learning about arachnids.
Grab some waterbeads and throw these in to recreate a small world spider scene for your child. There’s nothing better than learning through play, effortlessly and painlessly.;)
Learning with manipulatives that children can squeeze, touch, and play with reinforces scientific concepts in their young minds and creates a sense of wonder in them for the beauty of nature’s creatures.
