Smithsonian Virtual Homeschool Day: Insect Survival

The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is hosting a pilot program of Homeschool Days!

Insect Survival 
During this staff-led program students will explore what makes an insect an insect, and why they are so successful (insects have more species and live in more places than any other animal!). Students will investigate and identify survival techniques such as camouflage, mimicry, exoskeletons, stinging, flying and many more!

This program is designed for students in grades third through fifth.

Format:
Homeschool Day Zoom Webinar-Designed to accommodate individual students or small groups with less than 15 students. Students will not be visible to the museum educator or other students, but will be able to submit questions in writing through the Q&A, and interact through polls.

Please contact us at nmnhschoolprograms@si.edu  with additional questions about programs or logistics.
