Insects...An Informational Website

Been a while since I posted to my blog.  I really try to step away from work in the summer and enjoy time with family, friends, and on the golf course.  To my readers, sorry I have not posted much lately, but I will be back in the swing of things soon.  But in my return, I bring a great resource to share with students, especially boys.

Personally, I am not a fan of bugs.  I know that most people are not.  Most kids, especially boys are fascinated with bugs. is a site that offers pictures and information about ALL TYPES of insects.  What is also great about this site is that it explains the role that insects have in human culture.  As the site says, they "aim to help you really see insects for the miniature marvels they represent and to understand how intertwined our cultures have become with these alien creatures."  If your students are going to be studying insects this might be a good starting point for them to start some research.
