Hello, Mosquito!

This Hello, Mosquito! lesson plan also includes:

After hearing about the anatomy of a mosquito's head, little entomologists make a model of one. Fun facts are provided throughout the procedure. Bubble wrap serves as material for compound eyes and a printable cutout makes the proboscis. Try using drinking straws for this mouthpart to better represent the function of sucking liquids. Surely, you have never seen a cuter mosquito!
