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.
