Magnifying glasses & beneficial insects

Oh the joy of setting kids loose in the garden with magnifying glasses! They were on the hunt for insects, bugs, and spiders galore. We had a chance to talk about respecting bugs in the garden and the important role that they play. Too often, kids will step on a bug out of fear- but maybe they didn’t know about BENEFICIAL insects? Bugs are an important part of the cycle of life in a garden, and the students absolutely LOVED searching for them.
