Bugs in the Classroom - Entomology For Teachers


Entomology is the study of insects, the most abundant form of animal life on earth. Many insects are easily maintained in the classroom and can thrive despite being handled and kept in captivity. Insects can be used to model many scientific principles. Additionally, you'll find a variety of potential cross-curricular activities with insects that connect science with art, math, language arts and social studies. The objectives of this course are to give educators basic information about insects and methods on how to use insects in the classroom. The pedagogy utilizes hands-on, project-based learning full of facts, fun and DIY classroom activities aligned with the Next Generation Science and Common Core Standards.
