Description:

In this outdoor activity, learners investigate spider webs and feeding behavior, particularly how spiders trap food in their sticky silk webs while not getting stuck themselves. Learners catch small insects and drop them into webs they have found, then watch what the spiders do to approach an insect and prepare it for eating. This activity goes well with Web Weavers from the same source, and is a good night activity because spiders are nocturnal animals.
