Yuck I Don't Like Insects!

I really don't like anything with more legs than me LOL. Here in Florida, we have more bugs, than I would care to admit. Of course my kids are fascinated with them. There are so many ways to let your kids explore Science, that is free. My kids are constantly exploring the yard for bugs, leaves, and any other interesting things. They look at them under the microscope, research them in books, and online. All these activities are free, and require just their curiosity, and will to learn. I really love these old education videos, this one is on insects. If you need a lesson plan for insects, I used Lesson Snips. There are many others out there available, but I chose them this year, for basic lesson plans.

It seems natural for kids to be fascinated by everything including insects.When I was young,I remember I loved hunting for bugs everywhere and put them on my palm,observe them, etc.But now,I couldn't even stand a moment near any bug without jumping or shrieking.

Same here, Rochelle, I love to catch butterflies, dragonflies and even grasshoppers! My sisters and I put them in jars and observe them...

I am amazed at that old video Melissa, it is old, but still clear and very well done...very informative!
