Class Experience

Learners will explore examples of insect adaptations and infer how they fit the insect’s habitat or lifestyle.
Learner will appreciate the diversity of insects.
Crosscutting Concepts:
Structure and Function: The shape and stability of structures of natural and designed objects are related to their function(s). (K-2)
Cause and Effect: Cause and effect relationships are regularly used to explain change. (Grade 3)
Related Performance Expectations: 
Learner develops simple sketch, or model to illustrate how shape can function as needed to solve a given problem.
Learner constructs an argument supporting that structure can  function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.
Learner will compare and evaluate multiple possible solutions to a problem facing criteria and constraints.

Reflect and try to answer the essential question: “How can there be so many similarities among living things, yet so many different species of plants and animals?”
Basic craft and recycled household items to make bug with three body parts and six legs. cardboard straws scissors tape, glue, glue stick skewers or dowels, twist ties, cotton balls fabric scraps colored paper scraps rubber bands
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
