Spider wakes up at dawn determined to build a web with her silky thread. An assiduous worker, she's not tempted by the many alluring offers presented to her by her barnyard friends. Her diligence pays off when she easily snares her dinner in the web.

Activity: Spider Webs. This printable science activity focuses on facts about spider webs. Children match spiders to the correct web.
