The Giant Anopheles Mosquito
- Grades: 3–5, 6–8
After taking your students on a virtual tour of the American Museum of Natural History, consider these follow-up classroom activities for each of the field trip stops: the wolf diorama, the giant mosquito model, and the Ahnighito Meteorite.
Invite your students to learn more about the insects that inhabit Earth.
The mosquito model was first made to warn the people of New York City that the dangers of mosquito-borne malaria were giant, not small! Discuss with your students: How do we communicate dangers to the public today?
