Free Bug Learning Resources for Kids


We have been having far more rainy days than I expected so far this year.  We have been playing lots of games and building inside, but the kids also love to do worksheets.  I was hoping to find some for summer that they could work on inside, and then be able to bring outside on a nice day and compare with the outside world.

What better for children to look at then bugs!  Bugs are a big hit at our place.  They want to know what they all are, which ones bite, and which ones are ok to (gently) hold.  While you need a bug guide for all those questions, here are some worksheets and projects to get the basics down:
