Intended audience: Year three primary school teachers and learners

This video is designed to support cross-curriculum teaching for third year primary school learners. The video illustrates how you can use a template showing the left side of an insect and plant material from the garden to build a complete insect.

It is linked to the school curriculum in the following ways:
• Mathematics: Teaching about lines of symmetry
• Life Skills: Science: Teaching about insect anatomy (head, thorax, abdomen, wings and legs attached to thorax). ‘Observation’ is another important element of Life Skills supported in this activity
