Insect Scavenger Hunt
The insect scavenger hunt has 7 insects for your child to find outdoors. As they find each insect they should put a checkmark beside the name.
Backyard finds worksheets are used for recording any insect they may find while outside in their yard. There is a box to draw/sketch the insect and a place to write down the name as well as any other facts or observations about the insect.
Note: You may want to find an insect field guide for your studies. I really like these Take-along guides for younger kids.
Anatomy of an Ant
They will label the parts of an ant using a field guide, nature study book, or the internet. Whichever one you choose.
This is a more in-depth look at butterflies. They will identify what type of butterfly is shown in the picture. Then they will dig deeper and record their amazing facts!
Discover bees is the same concept as discover butterflies. All Summer long my kids would ask me: “What kind of bee is that?” or “Is that a yellow-jacket?” So, this little study is a personal favorite of mine!
Life Cycle of a Butterfly
Label the steps of the life cycle on the butterfly.
They will sketch and compare two insects of their choice! This one can be really fun to see the similarities and differences between two insects.
