In this engaging activity students create bugs that represent themselves based on a set of personal characteristics and subsequent directions. This activity focuses on Common Core Standards related to representing and interpreting data. Three math extension ideas and two interdisciplinary connection ideas are included. When finished, the resulting bug glyphs would make an attractive and informative hallway bulletin board!
