The Project

Project Title Small Crawling and Flying Animals
Insects To Study mealworms, butterflies, ants, grasshoppers
Project Description We are a grade 1/2 triad (3 classes that work together) so ideally it would be 3 classes using the Bugscope at the same time. If this doesn't work for your project, then it would just be my class of 23. We will be studying life cycle, needs, habitat, appearance, characteristics and advantages/disadvantages of insects. We are an inquiry school, so the students interests lead the work, and they would have so many questions to ask your experts. They would be amazed to see the microscope.

Miscellaneous

Where did you hear about Bugscope? I found it on the internet.
