This website was built to provide resources for use by teachers or anyone with an interest in teaching about insects. Each training module focuses on a particular group of insects and is composed of five items:
Student’s Booklet of Activities: Contains basic activities that can be used to educate children in the 2nd through 4th grade.
Teacher’s booklet: Provides basic outline of how each lesson should be taught as well as the answers to the questions in the Student’s Booklet.
Pre- and Post- evaluations of students: It is important that you know the students are learning about the target arthropod. These evaluations will allow you to do so.
Post evaluation for teachers: It is important that you receive feedback from the teachers on how the activities can be improved or expanded. We value any comments that we might receive
Crossword Puzzle: The puzzle presents questions and answers in a relatively non-challenging format. Some units have interactive crossword puzzles.
