Crabs, lobsters, spiders, centipedes, and insects belong to a group of animals called arthropods. (Say: R-throw-pods.)  On this page, we'll take a look at insects.


It's a good thing insects can't vote!

If they could, they would rule the Earth!  There are a lot more insects than people!   If all the insects in the world were divided up, and you got your share, guess how many you would get.   200 million!

1.  20
2.  200
3.  2,000
4.  2 million
5.  200 million

Humans are definitely outnumbered!


For every pound of humans, there are 300 pounds of insects! So if you weigh 50 pounds, your share of insects weighs 15,000 pounds! That's as much as 7 cars!   How much do you weigh in insects?
