Getting back into the swing of a new school year can be challenging, but
the National
Pest Management Association
(NPMA) is here to help ease the
transition and fuel the desire to learn with new lesson plans and
activities on its children's website,
Designed for students in grades K through 8, the interactive and
educational website now offers additional learning materials for
children ages three through five—perfect for daycare, preschool and
Pre-K programs.

"We hear time and again from teachers and parents that is a valued resource in the classroom and at home,
especially since we don't allow any advertising or external linking. At
NPMA and, we believe the only cookies kids should
come in contact with are the ones you dip in a glass of milk," said
Cindy Mannes, vice president of public affairs for NPMA. "So, come and
play with us while learning about the amazing animal and insect world.
We hope to inspire children and provide them with a fun and safe
environment where they can learn about the bugs, become a pest detective
and more!"

Perfect for classrooms and homeschool programs, users can access a
library of lesson plans and activities on that
support education standards from the National Science Teachers
Association (NSTA) and National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).
Report writing assignments, science fair projects and quizzes are at the
ready for educators to add to their curriculum this fall. "All of this
educational content is categorized by grade level on the homepage to
provide visitors with a more streamlined and easier navigation
experience," added Mannes.

The new preschool section contains worksheets teaching letter
association, color by number, matching, and counting themes that
teachers and parents can download. The website also features a revamped
Critter Crafts section with downloadable instructions for 24 bug-themed
arts and crafts. In addition to these new updates, the website retains
many of its popular features like the Pest Guide, interactive games and
Pest Quest video series.
