The Project

Project Title Animal Adaptations
Insects To Study Various
Project Description We will be studying animals and how they adapt. I will ask the students to view the insects and draw them with and without magnifying glasses and make observations on what allows the insects to survive in their habitat. I will also bring in my home microscope to look at various parts if an insect is not intact. As our session unfolds, I will ask students to draw your close versions. We will compare and discuss how insects are different. It will lead into research reports on animals of the student's choice.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? I had a bugscope session in my credential program at Cal State East Bay. I enjoyed it thoroughly and would love to share this with my low income students.
