Meet the World’s Deadliest Creature

IGES collaborated with Scholastic on this article and activity for learners in grades 3-6. “Meet the World’s Deadliest Creature” appeared in the May/June 2024, issue of SuperSTEM. SuperSTEM includes nonfiction science articles and activities that encourage learners to problem solve and investigate real-world phenomena. In the hands-on investigation, Mosquito Habitat Survey, learners search for places where mosquitoes could lay eggs, then plan ways to make the areas less friendly to mosquitoes. They are encouraged to use the GLOBE Mosquito Habitat Mapper, with a teacher’s help, to document the presence of mosquito larvae and dump out standing water where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
