Flour Beetle

Students observe the life cycle of the common flour beetle and make observations of its life stages. They also design and implement an investigation on food preference for the beetle and record data over a period of several months. Finally, students write a summary report for the experiment where they have determined in which food source the flour beetle thrived best.
