Product Description
This STEM AND WRITING BUNDLE project explores how to catch a Valentine Critter and then write a story about that critter, either a Love Monsters or a Love Bugs! They will learn about different styles of traps, work through the STEM process, create a trap, and test their designs-and, if they are lucky, trap a Love Critter! Then, they will plan their writing, develop a story, and write a final copy along with a picture of their Love Critter! So much fun and students learn about how entomologists work to trap bugs and how writers work!
