The Project

Project Title Insect Adaptations
Insects To Study butterflies, dragonflies, etc.
Project Description The children will learn how the different parts of insects help them adapt to and survive within their habitats. They will focus on the body parts, the shapes of those parts, the unique properties of those parts, etc. which allow them to survive. In the classroom, adaptation characteristics such as camouflage, mimicry, etc. will also be taught. After our Bugscope session, my students will then use their knowledge about the different adaptations to create their own insect and write a "research" story that describes the adaptations their insects posess, the habitat they live in and how those adaptations help their insects to survive.
