Insect Identification Activity

Butterflies, bees, ladybirds, caterpillars— what do they all have in common? They all belong to the insect family!

We have insects to thank for many reasons. From bees that pollinate the plants we rely on for food, to ladybirds that eat other plant-destroying insects, insects are our friends. Insects also play an important role in the food chain!

Use the resource below to help your students learn to identify some common insects. For extra practice, we encourage you to go outside to see if you can spot any in your area!
