UNIT 14-H Entomology Project: Unit 1
Welcome to Unit I of 4-H Entomology. We hope that this unit
and the activities it contains will help you to become more
interested in insects and the different ways they live. The
objectives of 4-H Entomology Unit I are to:
- Learn what insects are and how they fit into the scientific classification system.
- Identify the main parts of a grasshopper.
- Make a killing jar to use when collecting insects for your insect display.
- Learn the correct way to label insect specimens.
- Collect, pin, and label 25 different kinds of insects.
- Keep records of the activities you complete in this project.
- Do three of the optional activities listed
- Help other 4-H club members by giving entomology talks and demonstrations.
