Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 20, 10:02 PM

Check out this new eBook from the Smithsonian Science Education Center. You may download it for the iPad or Mac and it will be interactive. It is also available as a pdf. 

This book is designed for students in grades 3 - 5, introducing them to insects from a range of locations. In the interactive version you will find pictures, videos,  the sounds of the insects habitat and students may click or tap underlined words and hear definitions of the words. There is also an animated map in the interactive version. 

There is also a coloring book that you may download, and all are free!

Help students learn about why insects are beneficial, how they survive and how they impact their ecosystem.
