U is for Underground

~Mali is 4 years 10 months~

Since we are learning about earthworms, and earthworms live underground, I thought we should study about what else lived underground for the letter U. We also learned a little more about habitat and explored the microhabitat of life underground and under a stone.

We read the book, Life Under A Stone, by Janet Halfmann. This book examines the nature and behavior of the many small creatures that live in dark, cool dampness under stones, from millipedes to earthworms.

A few critters that live under a stone:
  • The wood louse (roly poly)
  • Millipedes
  • Centipedes
  • Earthworms
  • Ants
  • Jumping Bristle Tail
  • Stone Fly (under stones in rivers)
Or under an old rotting log like this one I found this summer.

U is for the Underground coloring page from the Nature Coloring Book ~ a supplement for the N is for Nature: An Environmental Alphabet Book. These are beautiful illustrated and quality coloring pages!

Talking about all the critters while Mali glues.
