Prepare to cozy up with spiders, centipedes, butterflies, and bees, to name just a few! In Bug Lab for Kids, Mississippi State University associate professor, extension entomologist (bug expert), and educator John W. Guyton shares his knowledge and excitement about all things beautiful, creepy, and crawly.
Every chapter is bursting with photos, illustrations, fascinating facts and fun activities--including experiments, hunt-and-catch and citizen science assignments, and arts and crafts projects--that teach kids about bugs' physical characteristics, behavior, and how they affect agriculture, health, and water quality.
Bug Lab for Kids also includes helpful sidebars that explain how to safely handle common insects, and how to easily identify bugs that shouldn’t be held, pet, or touched. Get kids excited about science and the outdoors with Bug Lab for Kids!
I received a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's review- Informational with added photos. While I would not let my kids catch most of the bugs included, the book was still very educational and would make a great resource for homeschool groups.
