Westminster Butterfly Pavilion we have all kinds of cool objects to look at. Here they are sorting insects and non-insects.
We ended this week with a fictional story about an insect, The Grouchy Ladybug. This was a great opportunity to add some discussion of The Seven Habits into our unit. The students discussed attitude and the need for the ladybug to choose her own weather rather than being grouchy.
Now that we have learned the basics about insects we will begin going more in depth. Each student has selected an insect to study and will complete a webquest next week. I can't wait to learn more about the Giant Weta from Julian!
