Spider or Insect?
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Spiders are arachnids (ah RACK nids). They are related to ticks. Arachnids have eight legs. Most spiders have eight eyes, too. Spiders are NOT insects.
 
2     Insects only have six legs. Insects have three body parts. Insects have a head, a middle part called a thorax, and an abdomen. Spiders only have a head and an abdomen. Insects have antennae on their heads. Spiders do not.
 
3     All spiders eat meat. They are carnivores. They mostly eat insects. All spiders can spin silk.
