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 studentsâ€™ return are bugs and critters. Kids of all ages love exploring the world of creepy crawly bugs. Explore metamorphosis! Or teach about the crittersâ€™ roles in the ecosystem. Gather a variety of critters and host a bug show.

Drosophila Fruit Flies
