This project is perfect for 2nd-4th graders who love bugs and other creepy crawlies that fall under the category of arthropods! In this project, students must answer the essential question: Why does your arthropod survive? Each student will need to research either two arthropods to create the ultimate super bug or research two different life stages of a single arthropod to make a survival guide for that superbug!
This packet also includes a place for taking notes and walks students through the process of skimming and scanning. A page also includes the different types of note taking basics: citations, summaries, paraphrasing, and direct quotations.
Your students will LOVE this project! I successfully used this with my gifted and talented second and third graders.
