How to Use This Course
Wonderful World of Bugs is divided into four units that explore why we should study bugs, what exactly is a bug, the lifecycles of butterflies and moths, and the practice of nature journaling. It includes hands-on assignments and also written assignments for families who choose not to bring nature indoors!
Entomophobia, insectophobia, and arachnophobia are the fear of bugs, insects, and spiders. What better way to conquer such fears than to study and discover the wonders inherent in vermin that slither, scamper, crawl, and climb?
This special class is designed to be done together as a family. Students should NOT try any of the experiments or activities included without a parent’s permission and direct supervision.
