Abstract: 

Discover teaching with dragonflies! This curriculum guide includes 17 hands-on dragonfly activities with ready-to-go handouts incorporating science, art, language arts, math, and engineering.

This guide is perfect for classroom teachers, naturalists, parents, and anyone who wants to bring kids outside!

The activities were designed for elementary and middle school students. However, they are readily adaptable for all ages (including adults).

Each lesson provides in-depth background information about dragonfly life history and gives step-by-step instructions for student activities. The activities were created to complement Minnesota state science standards and The Framework for K-12 Science Education. A downloadable electronic version of the guide and other on-line resource are included with purchase of the paperback book.

The Minnesota Dragonfly Society was instrumental in the creation of this guide. Its members dispensed valuable advice and guidance to the author as well as provided most of the amazing dragonfly photography. A portion of the profits from the sales of this guide will be donated back to the Society.

Also available on Amazon and B&N.com.
