3 Kindergarten State Standards Met Mathematics K.3.1 K.5.1 Science K.2.2 K.6.1 Identify, sort, and classify objects by size, number, and other attributes. Identify objects that do not belong to a particular group. Make direct comparisons of the length, capacity, weight, and temperature of objects and recognize which object is shorter, longer, taller, lighter, heavier, warmer, and cooler or holds more. Draw pictures and write words to describe objects and experiences. Describe an object by saying how it is similar to or different from another object. Social Studies K.1.4 First Identify and order events that take place in a sequence. Science Observe, describe, draw, and sort objects carefully to learn about them Investigate and make observations to seek answers to questions about the world, such as In what ways do animals grow? Recognize that and demonstrate how people can learn much about plants and animals by observing them closely over a period of time. Recognize also that care must be taken to know the needs of living things and how to provide for them Use tools, such as rulers and magnifiers, to investigate the world and make observations Demonstrate that magnifiers help people see things they could not see without them Describe and compare objects in terms of number, shape, texture, size, weight, color, and motion Observe that and describe how certain things change in some ways and stay the same in others, such as in their color, size, and weight. Mathematics Represent, compare, and interpret data using pictures and picture graphs. Language Arts/English Match oral words to printed words Listen attentively. Second Science Describe, both in writing and verbally, objects as accurately as possible and compare observations with those of other people Draw pictures and write brief descriptions that correctly portray key features of an object Investigate by observing and then describe that some events in nature have a repeating pattern, such as seasons, day and night, and migrations Observe and identify different external features of plants and animals and describe how these features help them live in different environments Explain that sometimes a person can find out a lot (but not everything) about a group of things, such as insects, plants, or rocks, by studying just a few of them Describe that things can change in different ways, such as in size, weight, color, age, and movement. Language Arts Tell experiences in a logical order.

4 Third Science Make sketches and write descriptions to aid in explaining procedures or ideas Observe that and describe how offspring are very much, but not exactly, like their parents and like one another Observe that and describe how some changes are very slow and some are very fast and that some of these changes may be hard to see and/or record. Fourth Language Arts Use common organizational structures for providing information in writing, such as chronological order, cause and effect, or similarity and differences, and posing and answering a question Use simple sentences and compound sentences in writing Create interesting sentences by using words that describe, explain, or provide additional details and connections, such as adjectives, adverbs, appositives, participial phrases, prepositional phrases, and conjunctions. Science Demonstrate that in an object consisting of many parts, the parts usually influence or interact with one another Write descriptions of investigations, using observations and other evidence as support for explanations. Fifth Science Give examples of technology, such as telescopes, microscopes, and cameras, that enable scientists and others to observe things that are too small or too far away to be seen without them and to study the motion of objects that are moving very rapidly or are hardly moving Read and follow step-by-step instructions when learning new procedures. Sixth Language Arts Use simple sentences, compound sentences, and complex sentences; use effective coordination and subordination of ideas, including both main ideas and supporting ideas in single sentences, to express complete thoughts. Science Explain that in all environments, such as freshwater, marine, forest, desert, grassland, mountain, and others, organisms with similar needs may compete with one another for resources, including food, space, water, air, and shelter. Note that in any environment, the growth and survival of organisms depend on the physical conditions. ACY: February 22, 2005

14 Insect Metamorphosis (Grades 3-5) How do insects grow up? Do they grow like human? To become familiar with insect life stages and with using a dissecting microscope, get a microscope from the cabinet. Try to find all the life stages: egg, larva, pupa, adult. 1. Look at the tobacco hornworm caterpillar (Lepidoptera), and Make a sketch of each stage. Egg Larva Pupa (don t move around) Adult ACY: February 22, 2005

15 2. Now TOUCH GENTLY the larva and pupa and CIRCLE how they feel. Does the Larva feel soft / hard? Does the Pupa feel soft / hard? Describe what you are feeling 3. Is the Pupa alive? Does it move? 4. Sketch the different life stages of a milkweed bug. 5. Mark with a ( ) check mark the body parts you can find on the 3 insects. Can you find the: head eyes antennae legs wings thorax abdomen mouthparts Tobacco hornworm pupa yellow mealworm pupa blow fly pupa

16 6. Do insects grow like humans? Yes / NO Why/Why Not? ACY: February 22, 2005

17 Going more in-depth. (4 th /5 th grade) What are some of the similarities and differences between the stages of a hornworm? Do insects grow like humans? Why or Why not?

19 3. Look at the tobacco hornworm caterpillar (Lepidoptera), [note the number of prolegs]. Compare it to the tobacco hornworm pupa. Touch each of the stages. Think about why is each the shape and feel that it is? Make a sketch of each. Larva Pupa Adult 4. Look at a tobacco hornworm (Lepidoptera) pupa. See how many parts of the body can be identified. Compare this with the pupa of a yellow mealworm (Coleoptera), and a blowfly (Diptera). Mark the box of each body part you can find. Can you find the: tobacco hornworm pupa yellow mealworm pupa blow fly pupa head eyes antennae legs wings thorax abdomen mouthparts 5. Look closely at a blow fly larva (a maggot). Look also at the shape of a maggot head (which end is it: hint: the breathing holes, the spiracles, are on the other end); count the number of eyes, and legs. Make a sketch of a blow fly larva. Label the spiracles, eyes, and legs. Look at the blow fly pupa. Why does it look like it does? Make a sketch of the pupa. Blow fly larva Pupa
