Coloring with Spiders is a great find from the University of Florida extension center that goes perfectly with the spider portion of our free nature studies! This free 17-page download covers orb spiders, jumping spiders, and more!
The illustrations are perfect for coloring, while the included captions provide just enough information to learn something at the same time.
Some of the spiders may be less familiar to non-Florida residents. But there is plenty to learn about spider habits and webs.
We have included the spider portion of our free nature studies along with other spider resources below to help you round out your spider investigations. Of course, the best way to get to know spiders is to have your children get out there and observe them themselves!
