Parents and teachers, we know that you have a ton of work on your plate. Let us help you press the "easy button" and support STEM in the classroom.
We want you to share your love of STEM and Beetle my Valentine. We created two new, free downloads for you to make Valentine's Day easy.
Simply download, print, and cut the cards and voilà - project done!
Kids can add their name on the front and a note or drawing on the back.
We even found some fun STEM puns and poems to make your day STEMtastic - The Entomological Society of America has some fun insect limericks that are worth the buzz. Below are the winners of their Limerick Contest! See if you can make up your own Insect Limerick and have fun!
Theodore Sumnicht, University of Arkansas
Miss Mantis heard spring’s ultimatum
So on thistle, her eggs, she did lay them
But she found them enticing
As they started ecdysing
And ever so lovingly ate them
Richard W. Beeman, USDA-ARS
A highly fastidious bot
Grew unwell from immersion in rot.
To savor fresh greens
Was the stuff of his dreams,
But to slog through raw flesh was his lot.
Martha Lutz, Bluegrass Community CollegeA firefly who was benighted
saw a light and became so excited--
he rushed to his fate
while selecting a mate:
lost his head, lost his heart, was de-lighted.
Give the gift of STEMesteem™ on Valentine's Day - well, everyday and show kids that STEM is in!
