Sometimes not. Yeah, I know. But we really enjoyed the section on insects in the Apologia Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day, Zoology 1 book. We started this study in mid-summer as we were dipping our feet into homeschooling. It is actually the second section in the book, but author Jeannie K. Fulbright suggests working through these later chapters when insects are out and about! The initial “ick” factor has almost been dispelled by knowledge (interesting how that works!) and an informed appreciation of God’s creatures and the amazing way they fit into God’s design!
We developed an increased awareness of the amazing variety of insects and enjoyed our new desire to actually stop and take a look at them! And take a picture of them! Although it’s obvious that orders Lepidoptera and Odonata are our two favorites!
