In Unit 6 Plant and Animal Relationships, students use a scientist who studies the memory of moths as they grow and a beekeeper who loves watching bees to explore how butterflies and moths undergo metamorphosis and have different body parts that help them get what they need to survive.
- Students raise a class set of butterfly caterpillars to observe how they change throughout their life cycle.
- Students create model butterflies to examine how their external structures help them survive in their environment.
- Students use a variety of materials to design a hand pollinator for squash plants that mimics how insects pollinate plants.
