Hello all! It’s that time of year again! It’s time to study the life cycle of the mealworm or darkling beetle! Are you ready? I have a fantastic book that is perfect for your study and a Mealworm Life Cycle observation freebie!
I came across this awesome book several years ago when I started teaching second grade. I always try to introduce a new topic with a book. This one is awesome for teaching the life cycle of the darkling beetle!
From Mealworm to Beetle Following the Life Cycle by Laura Purdie Salas
This book is fantastic! It takes your students through the entire life cycle of the Darkling Beetle from egg to beetle! The illustrations are big, bright, and detailed. Perfect for reading aloud. This book would also be excellent for teaching your students about Non-Fiction Text Features!
My students LOVED this book. I usually read it several times over the course of our mealworm unit.
