Insect Investigations Live!

This afternoon we had an opportunity to examine the many insects we found on a white sheet. They were easy to see and observe.
videoWe also had an opportunity to explore the garden and look for insects. After we found insects we tried to identify them.

Later we were able to watch a bumblebee! We were able to see all of his body parts and we even noticed that the bee had pollen on 2 of his legs!

Insect Investigations! An Outreach Opportunity From The Audubon

The Audubon visited Kindergarten last week and led us through a variety of hands on activities and explorations about insects. We walked through the ABS garden, through the grass, looking under trees and even up in the sky looking for insects. We found many and were even able to identify some.
