Our theme for our education sessions is this school year is Creatures in the Garden.  We will be exploring insects, food webs, bees and more.  The more we learn about these creatures, the more we know on how to properly manage them.
The topic of our first education session is INSECTS.  This past Friday we started learning the characteristics of insects and then tried to find some in the garden.  Children used magnifying glasses to see if they could count 6 legs on creatures they found.  Some favorite finds included crickets, grubs, millipedes, and cabbage worms. Do you know which of those are insects?

What are the 5 characteristics of an insect?

  1. 6 legs
  2. Antennas
  3. 3 body parts-Head
  4. Thorax
  5. Abdomen

Start taking a closer look next time you see a creature in your yard.
