Pest World For Kids - Updated Lessons and Activities

I originally reviewed Pest World for Kids in May. Since then Pest World For Kids has undergone some substantial revisions. When I first reviewed Pest World For Kids I was impressed by the educational games and I am glad to see that it still has great educational games for students. Since May, Pest World for Kids has taken on a much more academic feel from my perspective. Lesson plans for grades 6-8 have been added to the previous collection of K-5 lesson plans. The lesson plans are now tied to standards from the National Science Teachers Association. Also new for students and teachers are science fair project ideas and research essay ideas.

Applications for Education
Pest World for Kids is a great resource for teachers and students in elementary school and middle school. The educational games will draw students into the website and pique their interest in bugs and rodents. The lesson plans and science fair projects provide teachers with a means to capitalize on the students' interest.
