Some bugs are our friends. Some are a nuisance. Some are beautiful to everyone, some to only a few. We will look for the bugs that keep the life cycles of the Park working.

Explore places where bugs are happiest: but leave them there to do their work. Then construct a Fandex to show the stories of 5 bugs: their tools, their habitats, their jobs, their life cycles.

Then build a model Praying Mantis that moves by battery powered vibration. Or a Praying Mantis Farm, or a bug box, or a bee house.
