DeFelice, Karen L.
This unit is a basic introduction to entomology. The instructor guide and the corresponding student reference contain seven lessons: (1) introduction to entomology; (2) insect collection; (3) insect identification; (4) methods of control; (5) chemical control measures; (6) safe use of insecticides; and (7) integrated pest management. Students learn basic concepts in this unit by applying them in a practical manner. Making an insect collection and completing an insect fact sheet enables students to compare insects. The instructor guide includes transparency masters, job sheets, activity sheets, work sheets, a butterfly model and Appendix A, information on calibrating sprayers. For ease of use, performance objectives and competencies are included at the beginning of the unit, as well as being incorporated within each lesson. Eighty-eight references are listed. A competency profile is provided for recordkeeping. A glossary of terms used in entomology and insect control is included in the student reference. (NLA)
