Interactive video lesson plan for: Should We Eat More Bugs? | National Geographic

Activity overview:

More than a quarter of the world's population eats insects, and the rest of us have plenty of reasons to do the same. They're high in fat and protein, and they're less resource-intensive to raise, which is better for the environment. They could make for a tasty way to feed our growing planet—if you can get past the "yuck" factor.

By 2050 we'll need to feed two billion more people. Click here for a special eight-month series exploring how we can do that—without overwhelming the planet:
