Title Bringing KITES into the Technology Age
Insects ants, monarch butterfly, mealworm beetles
Description I would love to use Bugscope as a culminating activity for our KITES (Kits In Teaching Elementary Science) unit on Insects. Our district has been using this kit for the past 5 or 6 years in second grades. It is a wonderful hands on science kit where the children observe and discuss various insects provided with the kit. I think Bugscope would add a wonderful high tech/scientific aspect to this study of insects. I have 4 PC's which could be utilized during this time: and parent volunteer aides to come in and guide the second graders to utilize the Bugscope website. We could view the insects we're studying UP Close and personal!!! Then the children could add drawings/writings they generate to their regular observations, and compare and contrast what they've seen.


Where did you hear
about Bugscope?
