The Project

Project Title Inviting Insects!
Insects To Study dragonfly, ant, wasp, bee
Project Description Insects are a part of our third grade science curriculum. After observing, sketching, and studying insects with the human eye, hand lens, and digital microscope, I hope that Bugscope can offer a more microscopic look at this fascinating world. My students and I participated in Bugscope last October 2007 and the results were mind boggling. My goal for my students is that they will gain an appreciation for entomology and the small details and creatures that make up our world.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? Our technology coordinator encouraged me to try Bugscope last year. We did and it was a huge success!! My current third graders have been asking if they get "to do Bugscope" this year too?
