Class Descriptions

Creepy Crawlies
Science/Art—Alexandra Wakelyn (Crawlies)

Why is the caterpillar so hungry?  Boy, that ladybug sure was grouchy!  Why are bees so extremely busy?  Join me, young entomologist, as we study the fascinating world of bugs.  We will “buggy boogie” as we learn about the anatomy of different bugs, explore insect habitats, discover the importance of bugs, and so much more.
