The Project

Project Title no special project; we just love insects, especially honey bees
Insects To Study honey bees, praying mantis, pseudoscorpions, mosquitoes
Project Description I simply want my students to have this experience. I would use it with any of the grade levels and courses that I teach. From what I can see from your website, anyone would gain something from this experience. We cover insects in relation to general classification but also in relation to climate change, infectious diseases, plant reproduction, general form and function, insect behavior, etc. I also like for my students to consider relative sizes of things found in nature.
