Identifying Insects

Thursday: In preparation for our Insect collecting trip, students learned how to make glassine (wax paper) envelopes to store moths and butterflies.  Afterwards they worked on a group activity using a dichotomous key to identify pictures of 11 insects by order.

On Tuesday we will be taking a half day “field trip” half a block from school in the finger canyons.  Students will be collecting insects.  Each person must bring the following: 10 plastic baggies, shoe box, backpack or something to hold bugs. I would also suggest bringing sunscreen, water, and a snack.  The science department will provide nets, vials, and kill jars.

Due Dates:

  • Last day to turn in late work: TODAY @ 2:45pm!!!
