For this activity, my partner brought a lot of information on spiders and specifically on Black Widows.
She had several books with detailed pictures that she picked up at the library. She discussed facts about black widows with the girls so that the girls could identify them and know what to do if they happened to find one.
She wasn't able to get a live specimen, but said if she had more time, she certainly would have brought one.
The girls had a fun time and I'm sure some of them got the chills!
