National Insect Week returns in 2020

Yorkshire Museums Trust Minibeast online resource

This resource, suitable for Key Stages 1 to 3, aims to develop knowledge and understanding of invertebrates and includes an interactive game called Super Bugs, giving children the chance to create their own minibeast with the help of a cartoon museum curator called Jo.  The resource will support learning about invertebrates and their relationship to the environment.

Includes images from the Yorkshire Museum collection and interactive Powerpoint quizzes.
