Did you know that the National Pest Management Association and PestWorld has several pest lesson plans on its web site http://www.pestworldforkids.org. Pests provide a fascinating entry point into many curricular subjects, including biology, ecology, environment and health.
The pest management industry encourages the use of their lesson plans to teach insect anatomy, the social life of termites, the scientific inquiry process and much more. The lessons emphasize both content and process skills and support standards from the National Science Teachers Association and the National Council of Teachers of English.
To view the lesson plans available for grades K – 8, visit Pest World For Kids.
