Why study insects in your homeschool? 1. Because your sons will love it. 2. They are everywhere and everywhere on earth humans share our surroundings with them. If you are exploring insects in a nature study this school year then this packet will be a great addition for you.
Although we may rid most insects in our homes (so we think), the moment you step outside, insects roam free and are our neighbors. Our kids will come in contact with insects more than any other creature – ever.
That huge significance is enough to teach our children all about them. They are pretty interesting creatures to observe. You also never know what careers you are exposing your kids to.
Entomologists study of insects and their relationship to humans, the environment, and other organisms. They also explore how they are beneficial to humans or how they contribute to the well-being of humans, animals, and plants.
This printable insect nature study has several activities to get your kids interested in the creatures around them:
- Insect Scavenger Hunt
- Back Yard Finds (recording insect finds.)
- Anatomy of an Ant
- Discover Butterflies (deeper understanding of butterflies)
- Discover Bees (understanding of bees)

- and more!
