The students observed how to make a "killing jar" today to place the insects in as they are caught. They were also shown what an insect is..... NO SPIDERS!
We are in the Animal kingdom, phylum is Arthropod, class is Insecta. We are not doing any arachnids....
The students have access to all of the websites for figuring out which order their insect belongs to and will be creating a board to place them all on and labeling them. This is due May 14th.
Next week we will be creating our own dichotomous key and will be using it to identify specific items in our classes.
