Minibeasts - Virtual Field Trip
http://www.field-trips.org/sci/minibeast/index.htm
A field trip created with TourMaker guides you through a sequence of Web pages on any given topic. For each page, there is simultaneous commentary in an accompanying frame. You move forward and back through the Field Trip using the tour Control Panel and you can leave the Tour to explore links and return to it whenever you want.
The world of insects has always been fascinating, mainly because we can see them, they are a part of our daily lives and we have so much in common with them. Insects are part of a group called minibeasts, which are creatures without backbones. Like humans, most insects are social and live in communities--they have leaders, workers and child rearers. Observing and learning about insects is fun and exciting because of their size. As you learn and study through this Internet-based field trip, you will discover that their microscopic size isn't a problem anymore.
The Internet Minibeast field trip not only allows you to see these creatures in a way that you may not be able to without expensive scientific and photographic equipment, but they guide you toward being able to safely catch, keep and observe them as you learn in the real world.

Insects : 4 2 Explore
http://www.42explore.com/insects.htm
This web project provides "four to explore" for each topic.
On each page you'll find definitions, activities, 4 good starting points, and many more links and resources for the thematic topic.
In some cases, we've listed more than four websites on a particular topic. For example, we might provide a few for younger readers and others for more advanced learners.
Each school, classroom, and teacher is unique. As such we didn't try to provide specific activities for particular grade levels. Instead we suggest that teachers explore each link, then design specific, developmentally appropriate activities such as discussion questions, small group activities, or webquests to fit the needs of their curriculum.
The links on this site are safe for children.
