Mini Beasts? Bugs? No! Entemology!

Dr David Suzuki asks, "What are the consequences of teaching children that the insect world is yucky?"

I feel that when studying this field we should use the name of the discipline with children so call it 'entemology' rather than 'mini-beasts' or some such thing.

* Write an information report on what you feel is the world's most interesting insect. Include: scientific name, habitat, breeding cycle, special body features, where found,

* Explore your back yard, the playground or simply pick the first insect that you cross paths with this week and write the same information report as above.
