Play a little guessing game as you’re shown just the tails of a number of insects alongside descriptions of their attributes, behaviours, habitats and movements. How many insects can the children recognise just by their tails? What was the feature that gave them away? Can they find all these creatures in the garden? The children could create similar drawings and riddles of other insects and animals for their friends to guess.
With our book recommendations, we want to help you spark a conversation that leads children to discover STEM in their everyday lives. Have the courage to go beyond the obvious STEM connections and embrace all questions that may come out of your discussion with the children.
