Teaching & Learning Moment - Bombardier Beetle

~ Posted on Thursday, June 11, 2015 at 6:06 AM ~

Few weeks ago, I bought a book on "Bugs: A Pop-up Journey into the World of Insects, Spiders and Creepy-crawlies" and our 2 older kiddos seem very interested with this book. Maybe because there are pop-ups insects and creepy-crawlies in the book hehehe...

Anyway, the reason for my post today is to share with you guys something we learned from this book - Bombardier Beetle

Bombardier Beetle

Sometimes, after reading to our kiddos from the book, I like to show them YouTube videos on how the subject looks like in real-life, how it moves, what sound it makes etc. So naturally, after explaining to our kiddos what is a Bombardier Beetle, I searched for a nice educational video of it on YouTube. You can watch the video here. Our kiddos watched it few times, very intrigued with the beetle and I explained to them again and again, how the beetle protect and defends itself from its enemies.
