Enthusiasm continued after the unit and led to the birth of our insect club - ECBC.
Close encounters with insects!We looked for and observed insects in their natural habitats. We brought some back into the classroom for close observation, and made nice temporary homes to keep the insects happy. The digital microscopes extended our observation powers to reveal amazing details of the insects' body parts. We made scientific drawings to record our observations, and made inferences about the different body features we noticed. The insects were then returned back to the area in which they were found.
