Entomology Unit Study Wrap-up

The past six weeks have been a lot of fun!  I am throughly enjoyed teaching the online Introductory Entomology Unit Study course.  As it is a self-directed course, the participants are continuing to work through the material at their own pace.  Access to the online materials shared via Google Docs will remain until the end of September (some for longer), so do not feel pressure to get through the material quickly.

Along the way, I have shared numerous posts providing glimpses into how I have implemented the lessons with my own children.  I have also shared links to samples of student work and other resources available in hopes of inspiring you and your children as you undertake a study of insects.
