Mealworms: Everyone's Favorite Insect
"Is a mealworm a worm?" was the question that I asked the PreK students last Friday. What would your answer be? Most people assume it's a worm, but in fact, it is an insect. We're finding out a lot about mealworms during our Mealworm Life Cycle unit. Each student has a mealworm to study for the next few weeks. In our first exploration the students learned the mealworm body parts and became acquainted with handling their worm. It was a lot of fun, as you can see!
