The Project

Project Title Monarch Amazement
Insects To Study a variety; especially Monarch butterflies
Project Description I utilize Bugscope as I teach my students about adaptations. Bugscope allows my students to see how those body parts look "up close and personal". I also integrate Bugscope into my instruction about the Monarch butterfly: its life cycle, adaptations, migration, etc. After our session, my students will create their own new insect using a variety of adaptations and then write a story about their insect.
