Build an Insect Model
Bring all of those really bad horror movies to life by creating a giant insect! But your insect will serve the powers of good—good science, that is.
Insects come in many different shapes and sizes. A grasshopper is an insect, and so are bees, flies and ants. Animals such as snails and centipedes, however, fall into the larger category of invertebrates—animals without backbones—but they are not insects. Insects have very specific body parts. In this activity, you’ll learn about these body parts by creating your own giant insect.
