News: Tell your pupils and their families about the events to celebrate our creepy crawly friends during National Insect week 2010.

The National Insect Week website has a map, with a complete national listing of events, so you can find out what's going on near you.

For example, on June 19, 2010, Andover Museum has free, Magnificent Moths drop-in workshops. Children and their families can find out more about moths before making their own to take home with them.
