Description

I. NATURE TALES
There’s nothing more powerful than storytelling to connect us and make sense of our world. Introduce our topic with our read-aloud, Moth: An Evolution Story by Isabel Thomas, and related discussion. This nonfiction picture book follows the story of the Peppered Moth’s adaptation to the changing world of the Industrial Revolution.

II. DISCOVER
Enrich your understanding as we begin to explore what moths look like, their anatomy, and lifecycles with our illustrated lesson guides, vintage posters, and a variety of activities.

III. INVESTIGATE
Bring out your ‘looking glass’ and delve deeper into moth defenses including camouflage, mimicry, and their extraordinary ‘stealth cloaking’ that hides them from bat sonar. Solidify concepts with our STEM experiments. Learn why moths matter and their role in our ecosystems.

IV. POETRY & ARTS
Enjoy a related poetry study (with copywork), art study, and music study.

V. CREATE
Celebrate everything we’ve learned with a fun Moth Nature Craft and Art Project Tutorial.

VI. ON THE TRAIL
These nature study activities will take you outside as you learn why moths are attracted to light, set up a moth observation, and record your findings in your new Moths Nature Journal.
