The Project

Project Title Insect Math
Insects To Study Any
Project Description We use study bugs during our first math unit. We learn about their life cycles and group them together to help with math concepts and counting. Our school population is very diverse and changing economically. Bugs are animals they all have connections and access with. There is also a natural engagement and excitement with bugs - children are either wowed or grossed out, but the interest is high either way! The project would be a great way for me to further integrate science into the other curriculums I teach - math/reading/writing/social studies.
