Operation Insect Investigation

Expand your students’ understanding of a “bug’s life” by learning how they eat, move, and survive in our world. Your budding entomologists will also be able to identify this largest group of arthropods by recognizing their habitat and survival mechanisms. Enjoy a game in the meadow where everyone becomes an insect and has to find their friend through smell!
