How Insects Move

by The Bug Chicks

In this video, we explore the different ways that animals get around their environment. It's perfect as a lesson for kids in grades K-2 (and it corresponds with national curriculum standards!), but it's fun for "kids" of all ages!

We use insects as our model, naturally! But we've also made an activity sheet with other animals so you can test your knowledge and see what you've learned!

Download the activity sheet here.
