Is an insect a animal?

My friend and I were playing HeadBands and I was a butterfly, she said I was living but I wasn't an animal. Then I asked if I was a plant and she said no. Then I took it off and I said that I was an animal. She said I was an insect. I said an insect was an animal. She doesn't believe me. Who is right? Me or my Friend?

They are all animals. Insects do not get their own kingdom.

Insects are members of the animal kingdom! How can anyone be so ignorant to think insects aren't animals? What else would they be, plants? Fungi? Protists? Bacteria? Those are the only other options! Insect is not a kingdom.

I was playing the exact same game with my friend and the same exact thing happened to me! Insects are most definitely in the animal kingdom, under the phylum Arthropoda. They ARE animals and ARE insects.
