This is my second installment of the Boxelder Bug Adventures. I tried to inject more factual information into their conversation. As I talked with my colleague, Billisue, about my slice, she thought a comic would be a fun format for a research project. We talked about how when kids start to research a topic, they often want to just copy the information they read out of an article or book. Thinking about what an animal, insect, or plant would say if it could talk, allows students the opportunity to synthesize what they have read and present it in a format other than a report. I did have one problem: I could only find one live bug in my sun room when I went to take the pictures for the slice. The bug with the crinkled up legs is unfortunately deceased. At least he kept still when I took the pictures.
