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