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.
Mosquitoes, Other Insects & their Adaptations
This program is currently being developed for the 2017-18 school year. The two-day presentation will give examples of a variety of insects and their adaptations for survival. Students will also investigate diseases transmitted by mosquitoes and historical and present control methods. Keep an eye on more to come!
