I have learned many things about insects and spiders.

Spiders: Spiders are NOT insects they are in the phylum Arthropoda.   I just wanted to add them because they are interesting too, and there are over 43,000 species of spiders. They have 8 legs and have 2 body segments, a cephalothorax and an abdomen. My favorite spider I learned about was a trapdoor spider because they are ambush predators.

Insects: Insects have 6 legs and 3 body segments, a head thorax and an abdomen. They’re are an estimated 50 million species of insects! My favorite insect that I learned about is a bee.
