Do insects go to school?

You won’t see an insect graduating from college anytime soon, but insects can learn. Insects use memories to change their behaviors. Honeybees memorize flight routes and communicate with dance routines.!

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.”– Maria Montessori

How do insects learn to be insects?

Have you ever seen baby ducks walking in a row behind the mommy duck? Or have you seen a flock of geese flying in a perfect “V” shape? Researchers believe animals have the cognitive ability to demonstrate abstract thought, which means being able to think about things beyond just what you can see. Some insects also have shown signs of learning including imprints on first foods and lifelong food preferences.
