Teaching Big Scientific Ideas with the Little Creatures that Rule the World
Julie Larsen Maher ©WCS
Wishing that you could find a way to capture your students’ excitement for the bugs, spiders and other multilegged creatures around the world? Come get as excited as your students about insects. You will learn how to foster positive attitudes towards the amazing world of minibeasts and the important role they play in the environment. Learn how to cover the language arts, math, and life science standards in new hands-on ways. You will explore the biology behind these amazing animals, from life cycles to color. We’ll show you how to make our Butterfly Garden an educational adventure, and help you transform classroom activities, snack time, and reading into a very buggy adventure! Each participant will also receive WCS curriculum and supplemental instructional resources.
