Cool Insect Coloring Book

We just returned from story time at a local nature center.  The topic was insects, so obviously, all the kids had to have a chance to catch insects with a net.  My dd & I caught a robber fly, or so we were told by the docent.

Needless to say, I had to continue the learning at home.  I found a really cool resource from Clemson University.  It is an Insect Coloring Book that you can print out as a whole or page by page.  There are 44 insects and a color key so you can color the insects correctly.  Each page has a little information about the insect. 

Just think, you could pull an individual sheet to deal with an insect you just read or saw.  You could use the whole book as a study unit and study each insect as your come to it.  You could write up the additional facts and add it to the notebook. 

Free insect coloring sheets/book.  Who would have thought?
