Middle school special education students (moderate to severe) learn about insects by playing an entomological version of bingo. They cut out pictures of different bugs and glue them onto a grid. Place the game card inside a sheet protector so dry erase markers can be used to mark off insect squares that have been called. Finish with bug snacks (pretzel butterflies and "bug juice"). Recipes included.
Students read and discuss background information included with this lesson. They brainstorm the best sources for developing a list of native or migratory pollinators. Students work in groups to design habitats based on information garnered through research and interviews. They present their designs to the class and discuss pros and cons of their design. Students build nesting boxes.
Students view pictures of ladybugs and discuss the word "entomologist." In this entomology activity, students review information about ladybugs, researching an assigned topic in small groups. Students complete a "look what I learned worksheet," present to the class and complete a paragraph explaining why a ladybug is unique.
