Project Description I applied for this Bugscope Project this school year and was approved. Actually, my students just completed their "Going Buggy Over Bugs" with Bugscope today and they just absolutely loved it. So, I am asking for the this wonderful opportunity again for my new 5th graders in the 2012 to 2013 school year. This is my first year teaching every subject, and this project was fantastic! It is hands-on, real life, relevant, high interest, and really gets my kids thinking. They, we, were all so amazed to see the bugs that we actually caught, up close, and personal:) Please, give us the opportunity to do this again with our kids next year. Thank you so much for today, I know we will all remember for a long time to come!
