Insects

This series can be done year round. Students are divided into groups of approximately ten. The time frame for this series is 1 1/2 hours.

Students love this program. They get to talk about bugs, and why insects are insects and then they become the insect their group choses. They make distinguishing characteristics of the insect they have chosen and the Docent leads them through the activities highlighting behaviors of that insect as they go through the greenhouses, are eaten by insectivorous plants, and walk through the woods.

Activity One: Become A Bug
Activity Two: Adopt-a-Plant
Activity Three: Insectivorous Plants
Activity Four: The World Through the Eyes of an Insect
