Bugs, there is something about them and kids that seem to attract each other. At least the kids are attracted to the bugs. Pest World for Kids is a great resource and we are glad to share it with your kids. From a coloring book to online games. Kids, bugs and education; a great combination and we at AMA are happy to contribute.
Pestworld for Kids.org is part of the National Pest Management Association’s efforts to educate future consumers about the benefits of professional pest control.
The web site explores pest ecology as the intersection between human-created habitats and animal needs for food and shelter. The site is designed for students and teachers in the elementary and middle school grade. The web site offers information resources, interactive learning games, science fair kits, and lesson plans that support national standards developed by the National Science Teacher Association and the National Council of Teachers of English.
