pictures of fireflies and beetles

What should be done:

1. Explain to the children, that fireflies, though they seem very unique, they are actually a species of beetles.

2. Compare fireflies with other species of beetles.

3. Sing the following song about fireflies:

Have you ever seen a firefly?

Have you ever seen a firefly, Firefly, firefly?

Have you seen a car in the dark, Like a car, like a car?

Have you ever caught a firefly, Firefly, firefly?

Did you put it in a jar,

The jar, jar?

Have you ever released a firefly, Firefly, firefly?

You released him from his jar,

The jar, jar?
