Invite students to discuss their background knowledge of insects, a variety of arthropods. There are 30 million insect species, some of which have not even been named or catalogued by entomologists. Students, working in small groups, investigate the insect world. Organize a variety of text and electronic resources for students to use as they participate in this activity. Students may also be interested in researching other arthropods.
Once research is complete, individual students choose one insect that intrigues them, becoming an expert on that particular bug. Find out what it looks like, what size it is, where it lives, what it eats, and other details.
