Invertebrate Observations November 15, 2012

The fifth grades at Fox Hill School are learning about the classification of living things.  As part of their unit on invertebrates, the students have the opportunity to observe three live invertebrates-a crayfish, a tarantula, and cockroaches!  Students observe the live animals, record information on their data sheet and then make comparisons about the three animals.

The Science Center offers this animal activity to all fifth grades in Burlington and even assists with the lesson from time to time.
