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 resource is the last in a series of 12 activities that examine living things that might be considered pests 
  • The use of live insects is optional 
  • Lists a variety of activities to continue the learning experience 
  • Worksheets provide adequate space for pupils to write directly on the page 
  • Beware of broken links
  • The lesson does not lend itself to major Common Core standards
