       Please read through instructions before you begin:

    • Use a 8 1/2" x 11" white piece of paper (any paper will do)
    • Fold it in half vertically, then fold it in half horizontally so there are 4 sections.
    • Hold the paper vertically.
    • In each section draw three large shapes for the body parts.
    • Insects have three body parts: Head, Thorax, and Abdomen.
    • The body parts can be made out of various shapes such as a square, circle, triangle, oval, or diamond.
    • Each drawing should be bigger than your hand (you will not be able to cover it).
    • All insects have six legs, so draw six legs on each thorax.
    • Each insect might have pinchers or jaws in the front, draw those.
    • Each insect will have antennas, draw those on the head.
    • Add shapes and lines on the insect to create cool designs.
    • Once you are done drawing your insects , color them in completely using various colors.
    • You may color the insects in crayon, magic markers, or color pencils (whatever supplies you have at home).
    • Use only four or five colors for each Insect.
    • Color the background a color you have not used to color the insect.

    Here is an Example:
