The Project

Project Title Microscopes
Insects To Study Bees, Mosquitos
Project Description My 4th grade class is studying microscopes and magnification of microorganisms. They are also doing a study of the Yellow Fever epidemic in Language Arts. I think it would be excellent to show them what a mosquito looks like under your microscope and observe the characteristics of the insect that caused the virus. Our school mascot is the Hutchison Honeybees (for younger students) and Stings (for older students). I think observing the bee would be exciting for our girls.
