Go Bug!

By playing a card game similar to "Go Fish," but based on the stages of metamorphosis, learners will be able to see how insects change in form as they grow and will consider the advantages of undergoing complete metamorphosis rather than incomplete metamorphosis. They will also learn about interactions between parasites and insects. This lesson plan includes resources for educators, extension ideas, and is standards-based.
