Little Miss Muffet
Sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey;
Along came a spider
Who sat down beside her
And scared Little Miss Muffet away.

Little Miss Muffet was a real little girl.  Her father was a spider expert who used to make her eat mashed spiders when she was sick.  About 200 years ago, this was a common cold remedy. (from Spiders by Gail Gibbons)

Do spiders give you the creeps? Are they scary or friendly? Are they insects?  If not, what are they?  We are going to research spiders to find out these and other answers.
