When Dragonfly (age 6) found out that female mosquitoes use the blood they take from humans to nurture their babies, she decided that being bitten by a mosquito wasn't very bad.  She speaks very tenderly about them and gets very happy when they're near her.  I anticipate this changing very soon, but I wanted to capitalize on her interest by creating these Montessori-inspired 3-part cards.

The pictures came from Wikimedia Commons and are from a few different types of mosquito breeds.  I have included male and female cards to show that male mosquitoes drink flower nectar and females drink blood.  The cards are match the Safari Ltd Life Cycle set.


A study of mosquitoes could lead to their place in the food chain.  Or perhaps a look at preventing and treating mosquito bites.  Or diseases carried by mosquitoes and why they carry them.

I also highly recommend this mosquito life cycle book for kids.  It talks simply, but in detail about mosquitoes, their anatomy, and their life.
