Chewonki & the Bugmobile

Second graders were treated to an informative and exciting presentation on Arthropods. Our guest speaker, Matt, gave the students a hands-on look at various groups of these particular animals with exoskeletons. Students learned about arachnids, crustaceans, centipedes and insects. They even got to observe a live tarantula and touch a millipede, hissing cockroach and stick bug! Students learned a great deal of information about arthropods including their body parts, life cycles and defense tactics. Thank you to Chewonki for bringing science to life here at Skillin!
