Texas A&M AgriLife Extension – Elementary Insects [External Website]

This website was built to provide resources for use by teachers or anyone with an interest in teaching about insects. Each training module focuses on a particular group of insects and is composed of five items:

•Student’s Booklet of Activities: Contains basic activities that can be used to educate children in the 2nd through 4th grade.

•Teacher’s booklet: Provides basic outline of how each lesson should be taught as well as the answers to the questions in the Student’s Booklet.

•Pre- and Post- evaluations of students: It is important that you know the students are learning about the target arthropod. These evaluations will allow you to do so.

•Post evaluation for teachers: It is important that you receive feedback from the teachers on how the activities can be improved or expanded. We value any comments that we might receive

•Crossword Puzzle: The puzzle presents questions and answers in a relatively non-challenging format. Some units have interactive crossword puzzles.
