Description Focuses on the use of practical zoology in the elementary classroom. Offers students an opportunity to classify classroom-compatible organisms including snails, earthworms, red worms, butterflies, mealworms, crayfish, crickets, beetles, praying mantises, and spiders and to explore their structures, needs, life cycles, habitats, adaptations, behaviors, and heredity.
