Fun insect class
On August 4th (Sun), we held a “Fun Insect Class” with a lecture by Mr. Hiroshi Watanabe of the Insect Science Education Center!
First of all, we explained the mantis, and after that, the participants touched two kinds of peculiar mantis, Hanakamakiri and Kareha Manakiri, and studied the mantis's habits with slides.
After that, mantis and insects are searched for in the central flower bed. Not only praying mantis but also Aosiagehaha, grasshoppers, etc. were found!
I also made a moving beetle and swallowtail butterfly using a straw in a paper work!
Wasn't it the chance to study insects during the rest of summer vacation?
