While assembling McHenry County’s biggest bug, discover the characteristics that make insects different from other animals. We discuss the unique life cycles of insects, including the process of metamorphosis. Students hike outdoors to catch, observe, and identify insects. Students will recognize the importance of insects to the environment and how their traits can be influenced by environmental factors.
