Product Description
This packet is filled with 8 station activity cards, banners, materials lists and directions to host a family activity science night (or to modify for your own stations use.)
*Station 1- Make a Bug Catcher- to bring home and safely snag your own creepy crawlies. (using a wire hanger and nosiery)
*Station 2- Jointed body parts, observe how insects with excoskeletons are all about. (need to purchase small and large crickets from a local pet store, usually 3-9 cents per cricket)
*Station 3- All in the Family- observe an ant home and make an ant. (need to purchase an ant farm and ants, takes 3 weeks or so to send ants and let them crawl around for a few days before your big event, the gel ant colonies are my favorite. You can raffle it off as a prize at the end of the evening.)
*Station 4- Bug Eyed- what kind of eyes do some insects have? (create your own buggy picture as you'd see the world.)
*Station 5- Clingers- insects don't have toes like you and I, how do they get around? (need a dinner plate and small amounts of water along with a few other basic materials.)
*Station 6- Lifers- how do insect wings work? (a brief but scientific explanation and chart, pictures of different types of wings and then make some wings!)
*Station 7- Singers- how do some insects make sounds? (need emery boards, rubber bands, cardboard and a quiet corner.)
*Station 8- Insect discovery station (fill this with picture books, field guides coloring sheets or snacks!)
