Learn about aquatic insects by becoming one! The build-a bug kit lets you try on different adaptations to a life in water. From gills to claws, macro-invertebrates have bodies specialized to live in their watery world.

Kit includes:

  • Build-a-bug lesson plan
  • Dress-up adaptations ("gills", "compound eyes", "breathing tube", "tail", "claws" and more)

You can find this, and other water lesson plans over at Utah State University Extension. Learn more
