Major Insect Orders Mini Book

(1 review)


This activity from the National Park Service asks students to create a zine-like mini book, each page providing information about one of six insect orders. The end result is a helpful resource for students to study and memorize insect taxonomy and learn major insect order characteristics.

The website includes a video demonstration of how to make the book, and suggested extension activities.

    This is a fun way for students to research and learn about some of the major insect orders, without having to sit through a lecture. We also like that this is mostly student directed, with students presenting their “books” to others in the classroom for assessment.
