Ladybugs in the Classroom Kit (with voucher)

(in stock)


Introducing the new standard in ladybug activities

Provide students with an opportunity to observe the growth, development, and metamorphosis of the twelve-spotted ladybug (Coleomegilla maculata), from young larva to adult. Students complete a ladybug journal as the ladybugs complete their life cycle. Along with the journal activity, the kit provides 4 different learning units, ranging from development and life cycle to defensive strategies of ladybugs. To facilitate learning, the included full-color teacher's manual provides or suggests dozens of different activities. Digital resources are also included to help your students learn about the ladybug in greater depth. Designed for upper elementary and middle school students, the kit comes with everything needed to ensure healthy growth and care of your ladybugs.

The activities in this kit build toward the following Next Generation Science Standards*:

  • 4-LS1-1. Structure and Function
  • MS-LS1-4. Growth and Development of Organisms

Kit materials are sufficient for 30 students and include a 1-year single teacher subscription to access digital resources: reproducible teacher's manual, digital student worksheets, and graphics that can be used with interactive whiteboards and teacher presentation stations.

Note: Kit includes a voucher to request perishable materials (ladybug cultures and food) later at your convenience. Contact us or return the voucher at least 2 weeks prior to requested delivery date to ensure prompt arrival of material.
