The Project

Project Title Insect Collection
Insects To Study Cicada, Monarch butterfly, fly, comparing beetle and grasshopper body parts
Project Description With 7th graders, we start the school year with an insect collection, studying entomology to the order level. This year I would like to include a virtual insect collection, as we view and photograph them in their nature habitats. We compare and contrast body parts with our own microscopes at school, so I would love to show them the power of an electron microscope.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? Another teacher named Kevin Ricketts. He sent a tweet about it on Twitter, and I checked it out.
