Activity Overview / Details

Send students out onto your farm laboratory or school campus to collect pests, worms, insects. You need to supervise this activity and specify areas that they are allowed. Send them in pairs. But instruct each pair that each person needs to find their own bug and they need to be different bugs within the pair. Be prepared with jars w/lids with a little bit of rubbing alcohol in each jar so that you have a location to put the bugs when the students come back in. It would be best if each student could have their own jar or place to kill and store their bug. Give students ten minutes to locate their pest, insect or worm.
