From beetles to bugs, ant lions to slime molds, praying mantises to earthworms, Creepy Crawlies and the Scientific Method shows teachers and parents how to use a full spectrum of insects and other crawling creatures to teach children the five steps of the scientific method: question, hypothesis, methods, result, and conclusion. Focusing on fun as well as education, and operating on the premise that doing is learning, Creepy Crawlies offers more than 100 different experiments. This classroom-tested collection of experiments and discussions on crawling creatures and scientific methodology is a perfect resource for teachers or just an afternoon of educational fun at home.
