Blue Point Elementary School kindergarteners learned about the anatomy of insects and their adaptations during a recent in-school workshop with the Long Island Center for Arts and Sciences.
The program, Build a Bug, served as a kickoff to the grade-level’s science unit
on insects and introduced the students to the three sections of a bug and how
each of their parts helps contribute to their ability to eat and avoid
predators. To reinforce the lessons learned, the students created keepsake bugs
using pipe cleaners and egg cartons and participated in a trivia game to
identify different types of insects based on a set of clues.
