Bug Week: Moths

Lets talk about moths!

Circle Time: Which Moth Doesn’t Belong

This printable has 4 rows of moths, print on cardstock and cut out. Using three that were the same and one that is different, the kids took turns picking out the moth that didn’t belong.

Things to discuss: How can you tell the difference between moths and butterflies?

  • Butterflies have knobs on the ends of their antennae.
  • When at rest a butterfly’s wings remain together while moth’s wings are spread open.
  • Butterflies fly around in the daytime and most moths fly around at night.
  • Because most moths come out at night their bodies tend to be thicker and hairy to help them stay warm.

Song/Rhyme: One Little Moth

Jean Warren

One little moth came out tonight, out tonight, out tonight.

One little moth came out tonight and flew around the light, light, light.

Two little moths came out tonight, out tonight, out tonight.

Two little moths came out tonight and flew around the light, light, lights.

Song Activity:Hold up one finger and then two fingers, swirl fingers around like they are moths flying around a light.

Moth Match:

Using the moth cards I printed and ones on a full sheet. The kids matched up the different colored moths

My awesome mom, Elisa found these super neat Bug Cut outs! I had the kids cover it in feathers to give it a furry look and it just so happens to look a moth!
