The fourth graders have adopted some babies - baby mealworms that is! They will be watching them throughout the week and coming months. This project is part of the metamorphosis and animal life cycles unit in 4th grade science. Student will be looking for the life cycle stages through which mealworms naturally progress - larva (mealworms), pupa, adult (beetle) and then eggs which will continue the cycle of life. Students will be documenting the mealworms' development, measuring them, and observing their behaviors. So far the kids are loving their new little friends!
