The Project

Project Title Through the eyes of a Monarch
Insects To Study Monarch Butterfly (and others)
Project Description There are two focuses (no pun intended): first, to look far more closely at what we observed first hand in the classroom the Monarch, and the second, is to look at how 'we' often mimic nature in our designs (e.g., how much velcro is like the cremaster and the silk button idea). This is part of our structures unit. We would like to look at the cremaster, and the eyes and probocis. Thanks
