This is an inquiry project based on researching different insects.
Included in this package is
1. Learning Contract (students fill out what insect they will be researching) there is a contract for both individual and group work.
2. Planning pages (students do research and fill out what the insect looks like, habitat, protections, diet, helpful or harmful, other interesting facts)
3. 2 projects to show their learning (either Diary of a ... based off of the Doreen Cronin books or a class compilation book where each student completes one page, bind together)
4. Project Evaluation page
5. Websites for students to research (beetles, butterflies, caterpillars, fireflies, grasshoppers, moths)
Typically I spend at least two weeks completing this project. One week for research and another to complete their projects. (The Diary project takes much longer than the book project)
