Tell us a little about yourself. I have bright red hair, green eyes, used to be 5'6" before all the babies, adore my husband, and am an early morning person. My alarm rings at 3:30 am for my quiet time, then I write, sew, paint, or plan school!

What was your motivation behind this project? Spiders and Arachnids were written for our daughter Kelsey, our Bug Lady, or Lady Bug, to teach her a scientific and hands-on approach to studying these creepy-crawlies, rather than mere book- learning. Observations, flashcards, labs, information, questions and answer keys helped her learn well.

What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope we've done most of the work for you, and you can relax and enjoy learning with the children. I hope children will get excited learning about arachnids ... and the extra lessons we added on centipedes and millipedes.

Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I love Tasha Tudor and her lifestyle. I like unit studies because the children remember what they learned so much better and longer.

Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree. Along with my husband Mark, I homeschooled our 8 children on our “Gentleman’s Farm” in south Florida. Now we reside in North Carolina. We began homeschooling around 1984 and have used a variety of teaching styles to teach the various subjects. Latching onto unit studies aided with teaching our multi-age group of children, and helped the children grasp and master the topics.

Scorpions, mites, ticks, harvestmen, millipedes, centipedes; it doesn‘t matter if you leave out the word “spider,” they are all still arachnids. With this unit study, you will look at each in turn (spiders are studied in a separate unit study), exploring the anatomy, habits, habitats, sizes, taxonomy, life cycles and more, using labs, activities, charts and dissections to really bring the course alive. Included are vocabulary words for each classification, book lists, a list of websites and an answer key. You can follow the lesson plans provided or create your own with the blank lesson plans, also provided. Enjoy this study of arachnids. ~ Zach
