Looking for an opportunity to include Spanish in your science curriculum.
Your class can become Citizen Scientists! Citizen scientists act as volunteer classifiers and observers of scientific activity in their communities. Help a scientist track the butterflies or bees in your area and review the Spanish names of the insects along the way.
Read books with your class to learn more about insects, arachnids, and toys. Challenge your students to identify the insect, arachnids, and toys (in English and Spanish) that they learned about in the "Hop, Look, and Listen" games. Suggested books, available in both English and Spanish, include:
