Launching your lessons with a hands-on activity is a great way to get kids re-engaged in your classroom after Spring Break!
Our most popular items for your students are bugs and critters. Kids of all ages love exploring the world of creepy crawly bugs. Explore metamorphosis! Or teach about the critters role in the ecosystem. Gather a variety of critters and host a bug show.
If you prefer to not have live critters, consider life cycle models for a hands-on, but not creepy-crawly, way to explore the life cycle of insects.
Caterpillars and butterflies.
We also provide classroom and individual student kits
