Exploring Insects with Discover Nature Schools

Date: Mon, 06/04/2018 - 9:00am to 4:00pm

Insects are over 90% of all life on earth!  Join us to learn more about the fascinating lives of these wee beasties!   In this workshop, you will learn about common insects of Missouri and be able to ask all your burning questions about insects and their kin!

You will learn how to collect and preserve insects and will make and take home some basic insect collecting equipment.  Insects are ubiquitous and provide many teachable moments – indoors and outdoors.  They are a fantastic way to provide hands-on, inquiry based learning opportunities for students!

Insects play a vital role in food webs and ecosystems!  We will focus on insect exercises from each grade level of our Discover Nature Schools curriculum - beginning with our pre-K activity of "What's an Insect?" and moving up to our 9th-12th grade mark-and-recapture exercise.  Come ready to roll up your sleeves and explore and learn both indoors and outdoors throughout the day.
