Speaker Sessions

Flutterby and Bug Fest

(Kids’s Activity)

Experience the world of invertebrates in a safe and non-threatening way. God created these amazing creatures that are everywhere we go.

Students will be put into groups of 30 or less so they can experience the beauty of God’s creation. Students can choose which class they prefer, butterflies or bugs.

Flutterby: “As a whole group, students reveal how butterflies and moths differ by dressing up a student or teacher and studying preserved butterflies and moths, then experience the butterfly life cycle in an active metamorphosis game.”

Bug Fest: “In this presentation, guests meet invertebrates from environments around the globe, hear about their characteristics, where and how they live, and why they are important in our world.”
