The Project

Project Title Going Buggy for Bugs!
Insects To Study Spiders, scorpions, butterflies, moths, crickets, grasshoppers, and other bugs of this area.
Project Description This is my first year teaching science, and all the other subjects, besides math. I have taught math for 15 years for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. So, I feel this will encourage my students for the hands on part of the science lessons. Plus, it sounds like a very interesting way to learn about science. We use microscopes in 5th grade, but they are small and not very user friendly. I have talked to my kids about this project and they are very excited it and already are collecting bugs for you:) Thank you for considering our 5th grade classes.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? One of my teacher friends discovered and passed it on to me. Then, I talked to my team in the 5th grade and we would all like to do this project. There are four 5th grade teachers in all for this project.
