The Project

Project Title Using Bugscope as an inquiry tool
Insects To Study bees, flies and spiders
Project Description This Bugscope session will challenge preservice, K-5 teachers to use Bugscope as a tool for promoting inquiry in the classroom. We will apply this tool to the Next Generation Science Standards (investigating scale, size, structure and function). We intend to compare bees, flies and spiders - narrow our focus on fewer specimens to see if this assists the asking of more detailed questions. In the past, we have looked at a multitude of insects during a session. Now we are hoping more focus will deepen questions and inquiry skills.

Miscellaneous
