Help your students learn about entomologists with this collection of reading and vocabulary materials.
You can download this information about entomologists to help you with our planning.
This is another free resource for teachers and homeschool families from The Curriculum Corner.
So often bugs are used as a classroom theme in the younger grades.
As children get older, you could develop an insect science unit that is high interest and engaging while hitting standards in the upper grades.
Skip the cute clip art and help your students see how insects contribute to our world. Many might not realize how important they are.
After learning about the features of insects, you could have your children each choose their own insect to research.
Maybe your students could use what they learn to create a picture book to share with a younger classroom.
Focus On: Entomologists
This download includes a few different resources that can be added to your study of insects.
First, have students begin with an organizer where they can share what they already know, form their own questions and make a list of places they can look to learn more.
Did you know? organizers There are two of these. You can use these for students to record their learning as they read about entomologists.
Entomologist Passages There are four of these. Each is a short biography about an entomologist. You will find the following scientists:
- Margaret S. Collins
- Charles Henry Turner
- Evelyn Cheesman
- Jan Swammerdam
Entomology Notes Students can use words and pictures to record what they are learning as they study entomology.
Vocabulary There are 16 words along with definitions. You can use these to introduce the words. Or, place at a literacy center for students to practice the words and definitions.
