Ladybug Day

Movement Lesson
for Ladybug Day

The students will play a game of Ladybugs Capturing Aphids.


  • A wide open space allowing for movement



  1. Divide the class in half.  One half of the class will be ladybugs and the other half aphids.  The ladybugs should flap their arms to imitate a flying bug.  The aphids should keep their arms down at their sides as they run.  (This is how the students will determine who is a ladybug and who is an aphid.)

  2. The ladybugs will try and tag the aphids.  Once the aphids are tagged, they will become ladybugs and try to capture the rest of the aphids.  Continue playing until everyone is a ladybug.


Other Lesson Ideas

  1. Assign roles and have the students act out The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle.
