Today we continued our discussion about insects in preparation for our lab with cockroaches later this week. Students were able to identify insects from non-insects by looking at their characteristics. An insect consists of a head, thorax, abdomen, and six legs. Students were also able to identify different adaptations of insects. The picture above is of Omar using a a FOSS application that was shared with me by one of our New Zealand visitors.
On Thursday, we will continue our discussion about insects as we begin our exploration of cockroaches.....don't worry there will be plenty of video.
