Lesson Plan

Insects A-Z!

This Insects A-Z! lesson plan also includes:

Alphabet insects! Who has ever heard of such a thing? Get ready because your class is going to research insects that start with a specific letter of the alphabet. In small groups, they'll use the Internet and reference texts to locate common insects that begin with the assigned letter. Then they are challenged with the task of using insect behavior and physical characteristics to classify all the buggy names they collected during research. This is a great lesson that incorporates several key skill sets and looks like a lot of fun.
