The Project

Project Title Investigating Inscets
Insects To Study Not sure yet
Project Description I am teaching a summer school class that was a huge success last year with a total of 49 children in 4 sessions. This year I'm teaching one 2-week session grades 1-5. The students have magnifying glasses included in their kits, but I feel there would be nothing like seeing insects through the bug scope! In my class the children will observe insects in the natural environment and also collect them and observe them up close. We learn about insect life cycle, insect parts, identification, and how to create an insect collection. Last year there were many students ready to become future entomologists.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? I found out about bugscope through a websearch in order to improve my class and have different activities from last summer as I will have many repeat students.
