Insects in the Classroom

by The Bug Chicks

In this video, learn about Bess Beetles and how an insect can make a great classroom pet.

The Daily Antenna: Bess Beetles from Bug Chicks on Vimeo.

This is the first in a series of teacher/parent resources we've created that use insects to teach about everything from math to history and, of course, science. We've created a special content section of our website dedicated to lesson plans, curricula, educational games, enrichment videos, interactive whiteboard activities and more. Whew! They've been in the works for a while now, but we are ready for the world to see the first batch. For more information, go to our Teacher Resource Page.
