Item description

Spring units are not complete without colorful caterpillars and
beautiful butterflies. This resource focuses on using observations of
these insects to solve design and imagination challenges. Purchase this
engaging resource now and provide your students with science activities
that will help them develop their curiosity and desire to learn about
the natural world.

These activities are fun and engaging. And great brain workout!

Project based learning: Bats, STEAM, Biomimicry

“This
product is absolutely the favorite one I have purchased all fall! I
love the information that is provided about bats – just enough to
intrigue and encourage higher level thinking. There are graphic
organizers, worksheets, and subtle suggestions to help young learners
perform at their best! And best of all, it stretches their creativity!
Thanks for such an amazing resource!”

Project Based Learning, Insects, Lapbook – STEAM, Biomimicry

A
very comprehensive, thorough, and unique resource to teach elementary
students about biomimicry! An excellent addition to any biology unit!

Why am I qualified to write these biomimicry resources? I
was a member of BEN – Biomimicry Education Network – and a curator
of educational resources at BEN. I am the author of the book
Biomimicry with Theo & Tuva: Nature spotting inspires wild
ideas. In 2015, I completed a course in Biomimicry: A Sustainable
Design Methodology at Minneapolis College of Art and Design. I
took part in the Biomimicry Design Challenge in 2021.
