There are 1.4 billion insects for each one of us. Today, many species are faced with extinction. Individually, insects may not seem really interesting - unless you get down on the ground or view them under a microscope to look at their amazing complexity.
Actually they are the invisible force working throughout the world to keep it running. They do everything from feeding us to cleaning up waste! Most of this involves wildlife, which insects keep going along because they are the base of the food chain for fish, birds, or mammals. Their pest controlling role is so valuable - and the way in which they can recycle a dead body or decompose plant life.
And think of the Bees! Bees have been making honey for us since Egyptian times.
So insects are our friends - let’s be very very grateful and look after them!
Welcome to the Learning Corner!
Eenie introduces us to some of his insect and animal friends, to different places, to the ways of the weather and to the wonderful world. Eenie also shows us how to feel happy and healthy- to feel strong and brave. We can create our own special life every day so that we can also enjoy being with friends, family and everyone we meet every day. READ MORE >
