High quality teaching resources from experts to enhance engagement and help implement a rich, diverse curriculum


This teaching resource has been produced in association with Soneva Academy in the Maldives. We learn about mosquitoes, their life cycle and why these insects are considered to be one of the deadliest creatures on the planet. Plus, how Soneva in the Maldives has tackled the problem of mosquitoes, eliminating insecticides and increasing bio-diversity on their islands.

The PDF file provides teacher notes. It contains keywords, an index for the accompanying PowerPoint presentation, and a selection of worksheets.

The editable PowerPoint classroom presentation displays the lesson content (select the orange button to download, and use 'Slide Show' mode to activate animations). Additional KS3 slides have been added for pupils working at a greater depth, to stretch their knowledge and understanding. They are marked with ‘KS3’ at the top of the slide. Please adapt this lesson to the pupils in your class and remove these additional slides if they are not needed.
