    Insects Set Questions

    My 5th grader is studying insects this year and enjoying it! Every now and then there is a question in the guide that is not answered in the reader. It finally occurred to me today that we haven't used the Peterson Guide at all! Oops! Upon having this realization we pulled it out of the desk drawer it had disappeared into and found the answer we seeked. I looked over the lesson plan and don't see it assigned anywhere. I'm guessing we just use it as needed?

    Is there flashcards for Insects? I know the guide has students make them, but just thought maybe MP had some already made.

      Hello- I noticed that too. I also noticed that the chapter reviews are not scheduled. Maybe that will be at the end of the year, I haven't looked yet. I think they are going to be revising the 5th grade manual to account for these types of things. Thread here:https://forum.memoriapress.com/showt...6143#post56143

        Our intention is that all answers should be in the Insects reader, so if there are questions not answered there, we would like to know! That is an oversight on our part and something we will want to correct.

        Thanks to anyone who will take the time to send us that list!

          From a post on Facebook awhile ago: "In Book of Insects on page 36, question #5 asks: "What is the American name for the fly that the British people call "daddy-longlegs"?" The teacher's guide says the answer is "crane fly", however, nowhere in the reading does it say that. It does say that farmers call them "leather jackets". Would this not be the correct answer?"

            Tanya,

            My son was working on lesson 22 yesterday. Question 5 is what tripped him up.
            "Monarch butterflies like the milkweed plant. What colors are they?"

            On page 136 of the reader there is a sentence that states orange and black butterflies hover above milkweed. I think he was searching for the name Monarch to be used instead of searching for the reference to milkweed. The answer to that question is in the reader. I should have searched more thoroughly before posting, my apologies.

            I am still unclear of how the Peterson guide is used. Can anyone speak to that?

            Are insect flashcards on the to-do list? <3

                  They typo there is actually in the question! It should be "What is the farmers' name for the grub of the fly called 'daddy-longlegs'?" and the answer should be "leather jacket"

                  No problem. We'll add the word "Monarch" to the Reader to make that question easier.

                    We really want students to go outside, look for, and identify whatever insects live in their area. The Peterson guide helps them to do that. It is not required to answer any of the questions in the Student Guide.

                      Taking photos and figuring out which "bugs" you've found by researching them is a great highlight to this study. For any who Instagram, you can follow or contribute to this tag: #memoriapressinsects

                      There is most recently a snail tagged, but not by an MP'er. Faults of crowd-sourced Instagram, what can I say?
