Product description

From monarch butterflies to earthworms, "Creepy Crawlies and the Scientific Method, Second Edition" shows teachers and parents how to use bugs and other creatures to inspire in kids a passionate enthusiasm for living things and a love of student-led scientific inquiry. In an era of video games and over-structured afternoons, this book will re-ignite children's ardor for the outdoors. The new edition includes four new insect species along with an increased emphasis on conservation and preserving natural habitats."Most butterflies are charismatic, but choosing which ones to include in this 2nd edition was easy. I chose Eastern black swallowtails because they're dramatically big, common, easy to attract, [and] easy to raise. I don't personally know of another butterfly that's so convenient to study, as well as beautiful. They lay their eggs in our garden every year, whether we want them to or not!"Sally Kneidel, PhD, grew up next to a small creek and experienced crawling creatures at an early age. Her interest led her to ultimately pursue a PhD in biology from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill. Kneidel has now taught for more than fifteen years, including college biology courses and writing classes. She writes on a variety of science topics, ranging from health to wildlife conservation, has published numerous other books, and has won several awards for writing, blogging, and photography. The first edition of this book, and the sequel to it, were both named in Science Books & Films' "Best Books for Children" list.
