Insects Trivia Game – Science Made Fun!

As the weather gets warmer around my house, I am greeted by more and more insects, so I decided to do a little research and create an educational game related to these cool creatures. I have included URLs related to each insect below the last slide on this game. This game features twelve common insects. Do you know all twelve of them?

Directions:
