Components

Bug Club Morphology consists of four kits. Each kit was developed to reflect the reading level and curricula at the following grade levels:

Kit A: Grades 2-3

Kit B: Grades 3-4

Kit C: Grades 4-5

Kit D: Grades 5-6

The content and photos on student cards were chosen to appeal to students of various ages, so the kits are also appropriate for use with students in other grades. The intended grade levels are not indicated on student cards, lesson cards, or the kit box.
