The Spider Beside HerGrade 2. This lesson will allow students to expand their knowledge of spiders. By creating a model of a spider, students will recognize differences between spiders and insects and will determine that a spider is not an insect. The concept of the spider as a predator who captures its food will be related to the fact that all animals have basic needs that they are adapted physically to meet.
