Pearl City 4th Grade Students Learn About Scarce Resources

Pearl City, Illinois — 4th Grade students use Thomas Rockwell’s book to Learn about the Insects
The students in Mrs. Schaeffer’s reading group read the novel “How to Eat Fried Worms” by Thomas Rockwell.

The class then researched countries around the world that have scarce resources and rely on insects as part of their diet.  We learned about the high nutrition content of bugs.  Students then designed their own new products containing insects.

They are proudly showing off products such as Crix cricket cereal and Hop Tarts containing grass hoppers
