Did you know that the National Pest Management Association has lessons plans on its web site? Pests provide a fascinating entry point into many curricular subjects, including biology, ecology, environment and health. PestWorld for Kiex lesson plans teach insect anatomy, the social life of termites, the scientific inquiry process and much more. Their plans emphasize both content and process skills and support standards from the National Science Teachers Association and the National Council of Teachers of English.
