Insect Models

Class Insecta has a distinct list of physical characteristics that are required in order to be classified as an insect. Three body segments, six legs attached to the thorax, 0,2,or 4 wings, compound eyes, jointed antennae, and mandibles or proboscis or even both mouthparts are just a few on the list. Students created models that exhibited these characteristics and then put them up for review by other student taxonomists!
