Our experience with Lady Buggy was fun, educational and very intriguing for the children. There was learning the scientific body parts of bugs through dramatic play, exploring different specimens with the microscopes or magnifying glasses, playing sorting games to learn different classifications, and the amazing hands on experience with the live bugs and creatures. The tarantulas were the favourite and most intriguing. The experience with Lady Buggy was the perfect way for our program to expand on the interest the students had with the bugs and insects in our natural environment. As bugs and insects are a regular topic the children explore from year to year, we’ll be booking Lady Buggy for years to come!

Lady Buggy came well prepared for my group of preschoolers, ages 4-6 years of age. She came with a huge assortment of live creatures, that we viewed through handheld microscopes, in her hands, and in their own environment. She was engaging and educating for their age level, and held their attention using a variety of teaching methods. The effects of this program were long lasting, as the children often spoke about how helpful spiders were long after this class was over, and would stop and inspect insects more carefully when outside. I can’t wait to have her come again!
