What makes an insect an insect?
This week we had quiz....just kidding, we had the children review what they knew about symmetry by making their own bug snack! Graham crackers, sunflower butter, raisins, chocolate chips and mini m&ms and they all got A's!
Next on the agenda was to do some work to figure out the characteristics of a bug. We looked at over 50 examples to showcase the features of an insect and the kids did so well that by the end and the quiz, I wasn't able to fool any of them! Ask them if they can tell you what the characteristics are.
Three part bodies Three pairs of jointed legs Compound Eyes
Exoskeleton One Pair of Antennae
An Insect CAN also have ( but not always):
Two Wings or Four Wings True Eye

I feel like there are others who would enjoy talking about this. I am not entirely fond of insects, so I cannot say that I am interested in it, but I guess I can try. If we are going to continue insects, then I better do my research. I know that it is going to be a tough task for me, but I am willing to do it. I want to be better and I want it to happen now.
