Beetles, or Coleoptera, are the largest group of insects.
There are around 400,000 species of beetles that are known to scientists.
They can be found in all regions, from mountaintops to wetlands to scorching deserts.
For this activity, we decided to create our very own beetle habitats.
Using colored rice, plants, tweezers, and toy beetles, students created the perfect homes for their critters!
This activity targeted multiple developmental domains, including fine motor skills, science, and social science!
