Those Amazing Insects! (Ages 8-12+)
September 9, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 2:20 pm
Led By: Elaine Anderson-Wood
Whether you’re already a budding Entomologist or just enjoy nature, this class will give you an additional opportunity to further your inquisitive, scientific quests! Even if you’ve never taken a science class before, you’ll enjoy this adventurous trip to the wonderful world of insects. Many of the same skills taught in Monday’s Buccaneer Book Club will be continued in this course as well. Students will engage in reading, creative writing, poetry, readers’ theater, personal research, math, music and crafts. We’ll learn how to safely collect, observe, identify and then release insects using nets, microscopes & other techniques. We’ll also learn about important insect helpers that contribute to the health of our world by pollinating plants, telling us when water is polluted and adding to our knowledge of ancient and present day cultures.
