The Leafy Explorations Motivator Map for Educators has many different challenges. It also introduces you to one of the world's greatest insect scientists who studies cocoons. From Botany to Entomology to Artwork to a cocoon challenge, this Map can provides the launching pad for enriched science discussions. Did you know that some caterpillars build their cocoons in such a way that with the pull of one thread, the bottom of the cocoon opens out at the bottom and a predator is frustrated as the caterpillar drops to the forest floor? Draw veins, build cocoons, read a book and enjoy this map as you work to engage participants thinking about leaves.
