Gypsy Moth Workbook.
Hamel, Dennis R.
The gypsy moth is probably the most sociologically if not biologically important insect pest of hardwoods (especially oak). Many people cannot recognize the insect. In addition, they do not understand how much damage it can do, how to control it, or how to stop it from invading new areas. This booklet provides teachers, parents, and leaders of youth groups with ideas and activities that can be used to educate children about this important insect. The 25 activities consist of games, puzzles, and projects, each coded by a recommended age group (ages 4 to 8, 9 to 12, or 13 and over). Objectives, instructional strategies, and list of materials needed are provided for the activities. Activities are designed to increase students' reading comprehension, writing, spelling, and mathematics skills as well as knowledge about the insect. (BC)
