Minibeasts

How to use this resource

This resource can be used on its own to develop knowledge about invertebrates or alongside a visit to the Yorkshire Museum for the KS1/2 workshop Funky Fossils and Super Bugs.


Alongside a museum workshop

You may wish to explore the resource before your visit and bring print-outs of any Super Bugs created by pupils to the workshop.

 

Alternatively, looking at the resource on your return to school and allowing pupils to play the Super Bugs interactive will help to consolidate knowledge gained during the workshop.

 

For more information about science workshops at the Yorkshire Museum see:  The Lab - an interactive learning space!

 

Information pages

Most of the pages in this resource contain basic information about minibeasts, suitable for KS2-KS3 pupils.


The Did you know...? page contains fascinating facts about the world of minibeasts and should appeal to all ages.

 

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 a quiz for pupils to 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 blank 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.
