The Project

Project Title Eager Entemologists
Insects To Study Butterflies and any other insects
Project Description As my third grade students and I raise monarch butterflies from eggs we also like to learn about other insects. We hope to look at eyes, tarsi, scales, proboscis and other anatomical features of a variety of species of lepidoptera, but also like to compare features of other insects as well. I did the bugscope project last year with my third grade students and learned a lot about how I will prepare them this year and look forward to improving our chatting and our driving skills. Although I teach first through third grade science, only the 2 third grade classes will be participating.
