Project Description I am using this session as an enrich to my 6th grade Science class. I have many students who are interested in Science and Technology. I like to incorporate new and exciting means of learning to pique their interest te get them explore a future in Science and/or Technology. We are planning to explore our somewhat large school grounds prior to this presentation with Bug Scope to investigate various bugs in our own backyard. We can learn how certain insects make sounds, or see, or how they use their stingers, how others use camouflage, and other survival techniques that insects have. I have two 6th grade classes one at 8:50a.m. and the other at 11:30 a.m. would it be possible to share this presentation with BOTH classes? Thank you so much for your time...I am looking forward to this new adventure in my scope of teaching as well! Sincerely, Sharon Sylvester
