Should we eat bugs? - Emma Bryce

Great video introducing students to the concept of food security.

You may feel icky about munching on insects, but they feed about 2 billion people each day (Mmm, fried tarantulas). This concept also holds promise for insect farming sustainably to provide enough food for the growing population in future years. Great essential questions and a quick quiz! Also a guided discussion:  Do you believe that more people around the world could be successfully convinced to include insects in their diet? Whether you answer yes or no, explain why you think this is the case. The wonderful lesson for kids of all ages.
