A Bug's Life

My third-grader, MJ, made this absolutely incredible project for her insect studies in science. I love how she blends her creativity and her love for science together. She completely amazes me! I wish I would have taken pictures of her starting from the beginning. This starts towards the end, after she's put the bodies together using PVC and wire hangers, then paper mache-ing them. At this point, she's painting & sealing them, then attaching them to their habitats.

Isn't she awesome? I'm so proud of her!

MJ, that is amazing! And to think that all I did for science projects when I was younger was to grow mold on bread. :)
