Project: Introduce insects and arthropods with an interactive website, and students identify their main parts. Then look at field guides and online images of different insects. Try to have real insects in viewing boxes or under the microscope for a close-up look. Then students create an insect out of Model Magic or other clay. Student must have the necessary parts to get a grade for the project, but can allow their colors to be whimsical. Finally, they create realistic backgrounds out of box lids or 2-liter bottles with the bottom removed. Display the insects in the hallway with insect trivia.
