The Project

Project Title decomposing
Insects To Study Leaf Litter
Project Description Students will examine leaf litter and the process that it breaks down leaves for decomposition. They will classify the creatures/insects they find in the leaf litter and examine them closely for adaptations they have for their work in the ecosystem in which they live. Students will also compare the creatures between a month time span. It would be interesting to look at them the next spring also. April 16.
