The best part is that you don’t have to do any prep work. You just get a copy of the Encyclopedia of Insects (sold separately) and this Notebook Companion™ and work through them at whatever pace works for your family. The Notebook Companion™ below is shown printed and spiral bound as a reference only, as it is available as a digital download.
You can explore the book in order or jump around to learn more about specific kinds of insects your kids are studying or are interested in.
This Notebook Companion™ was created a bit differently than our typical notebook pages in order to accommodate journaling over 300 insects (without taking over 300 pages!).
Each page has an index card-style layout that includes 2 cards that can be cut out and used in a card-like fashion. If you cut the sections into cards, you can choose to color the top section/tab a different color per insect group. Laminating the pages after they are completed will make them durable for referencing them for years to come.
Store Full Pages in a Binder or Get Spiral Bound
Alternatively, you can choose to print your pages and get them spiral bound or stored like a regular notebooking page in a 3-ringed binder.

Please Note: As much as possible when creating resources to be used with secular books, we omit asking any questions that require reading passages related to evolution. That was not possible for the occurrences in this unit, given its encyclopedic nature. As you explore the encyclopedia with your family, please use caution as you would with any secular encyclopedia resource.
