The Project

Project Title The sounds of insects
Insects To Study cricket, dragonfly, waxworm, cicada,katydid
Project Description Our classroom has 7 boys and 15 girls. At this point, the girls are very much engaged in science and math. I want to expose them to exciting technology and whet their appetites to pursue higher education in math or science. We took a field trip to a local metro park. The crickets, grasshoppers, bees, and cicadas were singing. The students were quite interested to know how the insects make sounds. I would like them to see the structures on the insects that are used to make sounds. We hope to hear from you soon
