The Project

Project Title Insects Up Close
Insects To Study any we can find, cicada probably
Project Description Hi. I am studying insects with my classes right now. My students do an interdisciplinary project where they research insects in my class and then use the characteristics as they write mysteries in Language Arts. They use insects and other arthropods as the characters in these stories. I love microscopy and do have my students look at insects under dissecting microscopes and digital microscopes. I would love for them to get to see their insects with an SEM. My question is that I have 4 sections of this same class. Is there any way I could have 4 brief sessions so that they could all experience it? Thank you, Juliana
