The “Advanced” version of our activity books is aimed at grades 3-5. Preview the Activity Book here.

This activity book contains:

  • A 2-page comic about a southern pine beetle outbreak in the Oconee National Forest, and how the Plant Heroes step in to save the day
  • A life cycle maze which introduces the student to the different life stages of the beetle
  • An exercise to identify and learn more about host trees
  • A fill-in-the-blank worksheet about the symptoms of a beetle attack
  • An introduction to population dynamics that asks students to think about hypothetical population scenarios
  • A crossword with vocabulary to synthesize what your students have learned

Note: As a general rule, we offer a maximum of 250 copies of activity books and field guides per year per institution. You may mix and match to reach this amount but you must get a minimum of 25 copies of each booklet. If you need more than 250 copies, please e-mail and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
