Kindergarten / ECE Lesson Plan – Lesson Plan on Insects (Bronfenbrenner New Zealand), Bronfenbrenner philosophy

We currently have this lesson plan on Insects in New Zealand on our waitlist to be built. Join our waitlist for this Bronfenbrenner plan (link in navigation).

Understanding insects is important for preschoolers as it helps them develop an appreciation for the natural world and the role insects play in our ecosystem. It also helps them develop observation and critical thinking skills.

Preschool learning environments that could be created to teach about insects could include a sensory table filled with different types of insects, a bug house or terrarium, and a garden area where children can observe insects in their natural habitat. Teachers could also incorporate books, videos, and field trips to further enhance learning.

Potential preschool lesson plan ideas could include learning about the life cycle of insects, identifying different types of insects, and exploring the role insects play in pollination. Teachers could also incorporate art activities such as creating insect collages or making bug prints with paint. Outdoor activities such as bug hunts and nature walks could also be incorporated to encourage hands-on learning and exploration
