Instructional Ideas

  • Pose the closing discussion question on a classroom blog, and encourage learners to respond to the question and then to their peers 
  • Search the Internet for a live stream of insects that class members can observe instead of bringing live insects into the classroom 
  • Allow pupils to work individually or in small groups for those that require support   
Classroom Considerations

  • The use of live insects is optional 
Pros

  • Lists a variety of activities to continue the learning experience 
  • Worksheets provide adequate space for pupils to write directly on the page 
Cons

  • Beware of broken links
  • The lesson does not lend itself to major Common Core standards
