Have fun with your kids! Collect bugs, study them for a few hours in a jar, and then let them go in your backyard. If you find a bug and want to know what kind it is, take some pictures of your bug and post them on this thread. I will find out for you.

Also, I have access to Entomology professors for any questions that you have that I cannnot answer.

Let me know if you like this lesson, and I will post more.

The "Word of the Day" feature at Dictionary.com is a great way of learning relatively uncommon words. At the moment, it has an archive with over 1,500 unique entries.
