The Project

Project Title Insect Adaptations
Insects To Study as many as possible; as big a variety as possible
Project Description I would like for my students to be able to see the various adaptations that different bugs have on their bodies. (from head to "toe") BEFORE: My students will have questions written before the session. We will also visit the website to "check out" the SEM. DURING: They will take notes of the answers. They will also be able to sketch some of the body parts. AFTER: The children will be able to review what they have learned by completing a project that will involve the creation of their own insect with various adaptations. They will be writing a story describing their bug and actually creating one from art materials that will be provided by the teacher. Completed writing and bugs will be on display.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? NSTA's magazine, Science and Children, published an article about Bugscope. I have been utilizing Bugscope into my instruction for many years.
