We will join together and learn about mealworms that students have purchased from a local pet store. We will start with proper care of mealworms such as food, shelter, air, and water. In addition, students will discover the anatomy of their mealworms, looking at the digestive, nervous, and respiratory systems of mealworms. Students will conclude the class by conducting simple and safe science experiments using their mealworms and present their findings to the class. The information will be...
DAY I-Students will learn: how to properly set up and care for their mealworms, about metamorphosis (complete and incomplete), the basic needs of mealworms, and how to provide what they need, the origin of mealworms, how to properly say the scientific name of mealworms, how to properly observe and record their mealworms. DAY II-Students will learn: the anatomy of their mealworms (an in-depth look). DAY III -Students will learn: how to properly conduct an experiment using their mealworms, using the scientific method. DAY IV- Students will learn: how to properly record and present their findings to the class.
There are no sensitive topics during this class.
Homework will be assigned each day. Day I & Day II will take 15-20 minutes. Day III may take an hour or two, depending on how in-depth the student's experiment and/or presentation is.
