Exploring Insects

We have noticed many insects in our play yard. The children spent time finding them and gently catching them so we could explore them up close. 

We placed them in separate Petri dishes...

...and placed them on our light table for observation up close. 

Because the insects were contained reluctant children could safely explore without fear of the insects escaping or touching them. 

The light also illuminated the insects so it was easier to see their body parts.
