Here is our very popular Invasive Species Bug Mask collection, just in time for your Halloween preparations! We have both line-drawn versions for coloring in, and pre-colored in with simple bright colors according to the actual true look of the insect. Our masks are great because they meld biologically accurate information with a fun and cartoon-like appearance. They are perfect for your invasive species lesson plan, ecological role playing, and more- whether for Halloween, Earth Day, or any other day!
