  5. Place the gummy worms on the rim of the bowl for a swampy effect.


After students have prepared and tasted the bug juice, write the word “bug” on the board.  Ask students to take turns coming to the board to replace the letter you tell them, then read the new word aloud.  Examples: Change the b to an r = rug. Change the g to a b = rub. Add a g at the beginning = grub. Change the u to an a = grab. Take off the g and change the a to i = rib.
