The Project

Project Title Adaptations of Animals of Massachusetts
Insects To Study cricket, sowbug, ant
Project Description As part of a life science unit, How Animals Adapt to their Environments, students in Mrs. Leary's Grade 5 class will be studying different ways Massachusetts Plants and Animals adapt to their environment in order to survive. They will be creating a wiki of all the information they research. We would like the scientists at Bugscope to serve as our Expert in the Field, as we examine some of the insects of Massachusetts and get a close look at the physical features they possess to help them survive. It would be wonderful to be able to include these images on the wiki. It would be such a unique educational opportunity to be able to see the different parts of the insects magnified to such a great degree.
