Have you heard the exciting news? The mealworms we have been observing have started metamorphosizing into darkling beetles!
The students have been very interested and excited to watch their mealworms go through the life cycle and undergo such dramatic changes right before their eyes.
We have learned some excellent vocabulary during this unit like larva, pupa, metamorphosis and exoskeleton. We did a few simple (and harmless) experiments with the mealworms and students have been recording their observations daily.
