Children like bugs, so it is unfortunate and inaccurate when they learn that insects are harmful. In this webinar, John will describe the techniques and materials used in a 4 day Bug Camp to build and sustain student interest in entomology or science. He will briefly discuss collecting, pinning, classifying and showing off collections. Techniques covered will include micro-lessons or entomological moments, managing the hidden curriculum or using free time for instructional goals and peer teaching. Finally, he will cover the requisite skills, knowledge base and teaching resources. Most of the campers at John's Bug Camp become a source of authority on insects in their families, schools and communities.
