The Project

Project Title Bugs Up Close
Insects To Study Any
Project Description I want my students to appreciate bugs more than just objects to squash and kill. We are in a microscopy unit right now and we will be getting into animal classification. My biggest goal with this age group is appreciation of other living things. I think that if we can see how spectacular these creatures can be that we might be able to stop the destructive behavior. I am looking forward to this.
