Exploration of "Pillbugs"
Fifth graders define vocabulary terms, identify the characteristics of a pillbug, and create a dichotomous key. Then they examine the pillbugs and make observations and record these observations. Finally, 5th graders observe specific behavior of pillbugs and formulate a conclusion to their initial hypothesis and construct graphs that reflect data.
