The Project

Project Title Structure and Function of Arthropods
Insects To Study Hercules Beetle, stink bug, cicada, bird feathers
Project Description Our class examines the structure and function of different animal phylla. As we study arthropods, I like for students to understand how their exoskeletons are also complex just as our structure is complex. We love to see the different types of mouthparts, but it is difficult to see with just our 8 x magnification hand lenses. We also learn to use compound microscopes. Before the session, we will discuss the different kinds of microscopes and their uses.
