In my 8th grade class, I teach a unit over entomology. This is the third lesson in that unit, which covers parts of insects and insect life cycles. There is a PowerPoint and a set of guided notes. This is a fairly simple lesson, and I utilize it in my lower level classes. It includes an opener quiz activity, a venn diagram application activity, as well as a closing activity that can be utilized as a quiz.
Identify basic parts of an insect
Explain the life cycle of an insect
Compare an insect life cycle to a chicken’s life cycle
These files are either in Microsoft Word or PowerPoint.
PowerPoint: 18 Slides
Guided Notes: 3 pages
