BUG Curriculum Featured on Channel 10

Having kids survey the insects in your garden is a good way to stimulate their scientific curiosity and teach them about the food web.

The Biodiversity in Urban Gardens (BUG) ecological literacy curriculum we developed in collaboration with the University of Rhode Island Outreach Center and others was recently highlighted in a Plant Pro gardening segment on NBC-10! Click here to watch the video and learn how to do an insect collection activity with your kids.

If you’re looking for more ideas, you can check out the curriculum online through our Urban Agriculture Resource Center. You might also be interested in attending our free Plant Providence workshop on Cooking and Gardening with Your Kids coming up on August 27th—click here for more information.
