Super Bugs game: The interactive game Super Bugs is a key feature of this resource is a fun way of teaching children about invertebrates. After they have created their Super Bug they can print out a Top Trumps-style playing card to compare with friends. It has proven very popular with learners of all ages so don't miss the chance to play!
Quiz: There is an online quiz in which pupils can put their knowledge of invertebrates to the test. All the answers can be found in one form or another within this resource.
Download: The 'Design a Super Bug' template allows pupils even more freedom than the interactive game as they are not restricted in the parts of invertebrates they can use. Giving them the worksheet to do after they have explored the resource, done the quiz and had several attempts at the Super Bugs game should mean that they have gained enough knowledge to create a well-designed creature.
