Free Printable: Backyard Bug Book Scavenger Hunt
I am a strong believer in teaching science through nature in the early years. When your children are small, there is little need to bog yourself down with science curriculum and complicated concepts.
So much can be learned just by heading out to the backyard. This simple resource is designed to help your kids learn more about insects by sending them out on a “Bug Hunt” to fill in the book.
Looking for Nature Study curriculum? Our favorite year-long program is inexpensive!
This is a wonderful little book you can print off for your nature enthusiast. Each page has a section where they can write about the type on insect (older learners can look them up in field guides and write detailed descriptions, younger students can simply write what they know), an area to document the date and the weather on the day they saw the insect, what the insect was doing at the time, and a place to draw a picture.
Includes: Bee, Ant, Caterpillar, Butterfly, Moth, Beetle, Ladybug, Dragonfly, Grasshopper, Firefly
I print mine in booklet format, two sheets to a page, fold and staple.
Illustrations by The Painted Crow.
