Session 1 (September 3- October 8)
Investigating Insects with Cassandra Love
In this class, we will learn about insects and other invertebrates. We will use scientific skills to discover more about these fascinating creepy crawly critters. We will map the movements of crickets and hatch butterflies from larvae. Materials fee: $15
Let's Make a Movie about an Insect with Lisa Smith
Students will select and craft an insect which they will use as a prop in their movie. As they craft, they will also plan the parts of their movie. We will then shoot a combination of crafted insects, student acting and voice-overs, as chosen by the student, which we will use in editing, together with insect sounds and music to complete their short movie. Students will get a DVD or digital link of their movie, as preferred.
