Insects and Bugs Backyard Workbook
Introduce children to insects and bugs through fun activities and hands-on science projects.
From ants and beetles to dragonflies and mosquitoes, bugs are amazing little creatures. They provide incredible opportunities for getting outside and discovering nature. There are so many kinds to see and appreciate―even in your backyard or at a nearby park.
Teach your children to love and protect the great outdoors. This workbook by entomologist Jaret C. Daniels features more than 20 simple, fun introductions to a variety of creepy crawlies, including bees, butterflies, spiders, and more. Plus, over a dozen activities help kids to make hypotheses, experiment and observe. The 19 hands-on science projects―such as raising native caterpillars and attracting moths with ultraviolet light―put students in control of their own learning!
You never know what your children will uncover in their outdoor classrooms. Every day is a little treasure hunt. If they keep good records and share what they find, their observations can even help scientists learn more about nature. So get the Insects & Bugs Backyard Workbook, and get started on a lifetime of discovery.
