Going back to school isn’t so hard when the learning is fun!


Summer break always goes by in the blink of an eye, but during that time students can lose some of the knowledge they spent all year gaining. The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) is proud to provide materials on its children’s website, PestWorldForKids.org, to help parents, teachers and kids avoid the summer slump and start off the school year on the right foot. Designed for students from Pre-K to 8th grade, PestWorldForKids.org offers a safe and fun educational environment with activities that make learning about insects and other animals an adventure.
