Insects We Love and Hate

This lesson is about insects rather than parasites, but it teaches students about some insect parasites (e.g., mosquitoes and lice) as well as about insects in general. Students will see pictures of insects that bite and sting, and others of insects that don’t bother people. They will classify insects into “likeable” and “not-so-likeable” categories and draw pictures of insects that people like and don’t like.
