We met up with our Friday Friends group this morning at the local conservation area to learn about insects.  We always have a great time there, and the staff are wonderful.  Today`s exploration saw the kids searching out insects in 3 different habitats (woods, lawn and meadow) and comparing the results. Although we did this in an organized group, it would be an easy project to take on as a family.  We collected as many specimens as we could from each spot, compared them, and had some great conversations about diversity.

Of course, the highlight of the morning was putting grasshoppers in the same container with the praying mantis, but I guess that is kids for you...
