5. Get Buggy
- There are way more insects doing good things for us than insects “bugging” us. Create an insect journal and make a list of some of the ways that insects help.
- Go out to your yard or garden and observe all the insects you see. Look on flowers, under rocks, and on trees. Write down your observations in your journal.
- Identify the insects you saw. You can use the Internet, ask your mentoring sister or an adult, or look them up in a field guide or encyclopedia. In your journal, make sure to keep track of what you learn.
