The Project

Project Title Eager Entemologists
Insects To Study < LEFT BLANK >
Project Description I raise monarch butterflies with my 3rd grade science students and the computer is integrated into that study in a variety of ways. One of the concepts I want the children to understand is that monarchs are insects, the tremendous diversity of insects on our planet and their importance. We have a school garden in the city where we find lots of insects. Fall is a great time to find dead insects in Pennsylvania as they are dying before winter. Can we send pupa as well?
