The Project

Project Title Can We See Evidence of the Adult Insect in the Pupa Stage?
Insects To Study Painted Lady Butterfly Chrysalis, Meal Worm Larva, Wax Worm Pupa
Project Description We are anticipating that with the help of the electron microscope, we will see evidence of the growing and developing adult. We are hoping that each group of two classes/40 students, will be able to study one of the insects to determine if evidence of the adult can be seen. Each group will then be able to enjoy the archived discussions of the other two groups. This is a part of our first grade entomology unit.
