1. Bug Off: The Insect World

01. Bug Off: The Insect World

All insects have a few things in common: an exoskeleton, which protects their internal organs; the skeleton has three parts (head, thorax and abdomen); three pairs of legs, a set of antennae, and many have wings. Watch for all of these "parts" and probably a few imaginary ones as kids create a swarm of "buggy" creatures. Projects include: Upright Insects - Offers a new technique using Styrofoam, tissue paper and a little glitter; Bug Bottle and Insect Cutouts - Kids create a natural habitat for collecting bugs complete with twigs, leaves and moss; Dragonflies - Kids paint a chipwood box with a dragonfly design; Butterflies and Spiders - We know that spiders are not true insects, but we couldn't resist adding an eight-legged bug using foam, tissue, and paper; Insects on the Move - Wood spools and Styrofoam help kids animate their insect creations; Hands On Project - Kids help kids by bringing craft and school supplies to those in homeless shelters. 01/07DE PI 30 min.
