Invent an Insect Project
We used this project as a contest to give classes a chance to win a field trip to the Harry's Big Adventure: My Bug World exhibition. This is a great project for when you start to focus on entymology. The activity encourages students to think critically, be creative and work in teams. We enjoyed judging the submissions and are sure that your students will have a blast inventing insects of their own.
Intended for grades 3 - 6.
