Miss Ava's Catching Critters

Fascinated by bugs that can change from a caterpillar into a butterfly or a worm that morphs into a beetle? What about water striders that can skate on top of the water? That’s crazy cool! Campers will search for insects like grasshoppers and beetles that hide in the leaves of trees and shrubs or burrow in the dirt. On Wednesday, we will travel to Freedom Park to catch and release critters that live in a shallow stream. Each camper will receive mealworms and painted lady larvae that go through metamorphosis.

Projects include making: • Stuffed insect to show its 3 body parts • Mealworm container • Butterfly habitat • Paper bag puppet. Learning concepts include: • Identifying insects • Metamorphosis • Insect habitats • Collecting specimens. Drop-off and pick-up in the carpool loop.
