The Project

Project Title Insect appendages

Project Description We will be studying insects in December. We will focus on the variations in insect appendages (claws, legs, antennae, wings) and body parts ( head, thorax, abdomen). Through this activity I hope generate an interest and enthusiam in the diversity of organisms. We are a rural community, of predominately white students. My classes have 1 African American, and 2 Latin American students. 60% of the students are on free or reduced lunch.
