5th Grade

The Good, The Bad, The Mosquito

Teachers may choose between a one-day or two-day program. For both programs students will participate in an interactive presentation to discuss the life cycle of the mosquito, anatomy of a mosquito, diseases transmitted by mosquitoes and efforts used to control mosquitoes. The presentation includes a PowerPoint element and wraps up each session with a mini-lab observing adult mosquitoes or investigating mosquito predators. All lessons have been linked to the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) and include pre/post curriculum materials.
