The Project

Project Title Integration of Entomology and Microscopy
Insects To Study < LEFT BLANK >
Project Description As a culminating activity for our unit on Entomology, I would like to use Bugscope to give students a completely different view of the insects that we have been studying for the last two weeks. Prior to the unit on insects, my seventh grade students have had an extensive unit on microscopes. We then went into classification of living organisms and went further into detail with arthropods and insects in particular. We have studied the complete and incomplete metamorphosis of insects, the orders of insects, and students collected insects to classify into the correct order. Bugscope would be a wonderful way for them to see the insects we have been studying in an entirely new and fascinating way. It would also be a wonderful way to integrate what they have learned about microscopes as well.


Where did you hear about Bugscope? Used this last year
