1. The program starts out with the educator engaging the students in a conversation about how we can tell that a bug would be classified as an insect.
2. The educator shows different bug models and asks the students to identify if it is an insect or not.
3. The educator discusses with the students the insect life cycle as well as the function of the different body parts.
4. The educator then will lead the students through their bug building activity.
5. If time allows, we will take questions.
- understand and identify the number of legs an insect has
- identify the body parts of an insect and the functions of those parts
- explore the insect life cycle and main components of their habitat
