This month at Creative World Schools, we are Buggin’ Out! It’s a creepy, crawly, buzzy world out there and we are investigating it.

 

Bugs are a great topic for young learners because they are…

  • Small
  • Catchable
  • Curious
  • Alive

We typically highlight a certain kind of bug to study. Different bugs can teach children about so many things!

Ants: social interactions/working together, size & strength

Butterflies: life cycle and transformation

Bees: the environment (as a keystone species) and communication

Ladybugs: predators/camouflage, adaptability

Worms: hard work, soil quality/farming

 

(Did you know that in 1881 Charles Darwin said,¬†“It may be doubted whether there are many other animals which have played so important a part in the history of the world.”?)

Some adults are scared of bugs… many are cautious. If you fall into either of those categories, remember that it’s important to empower your child with knowledge so that they understand and can act wisely around bugs.

Check in with your child’s teacher or find your Creative World to learn more about what your young learner will be experiencing in this squiggly wiggly month of fun!
