With the weather warming up outside, this download is the perfect way to start teaching your students about the different kinds of insects that will slowly be making their way out again. Although initially designed for special education, life skills students, any student could benefit from the hands-on, visual, and step-by-step directions given in this entire packet.

What is nice about this purchase is that students get to learn about insects in a variety of ways. Clip art images, real images, and text as well! If your students are anything like mine, they really struggle pulling meaningful information from the internet. They either copy an entire paragraph of words they don't understand or spend all their time trying to find one part of their research. This download was created so the guesswork could be taken out and students could already have all the information laid out for them in an easy to read format.
How I Use This in My Classroom
Depending on the size of your classroom, I create centers and students rotate through each center where there is a different insect assigned. I laminate the posters that have all the information present and put 2-3 copies at each table. Students then participate collaboratively and answer the questions about each insect. When they are done, they rotate to the next center. We then meet as a group and share what we learned about each insect together as a class! Kids absolutely love it, and the scaffolded process really helps them engage in a much more meaningful way!
