    Insect Lessons
    By Sue

    Clip to ScrapBook
    There are some wonderful resources on insects. One is called Critters by AIMS. I use many of their ideas. The other is Incredible Insects by National Wildlife, but I think Scholastic might be publishing it now.

    One thing I do often, is buy mealworms, have the kids measure them, keep a journal and observe them. The kids LOVE them. I have also bought crickets, and they have observed them, counted their legs, drawn and labelled them. Another idea is to go outdoors for an "insect scavenger hunt" Make a grid, and put in instructions like: Find an insect who has made its home in the sidewalk. Find an insect that can fly. Find an insect that is camoflauged.
