Observe Millipedes More Closely with STC™ Animal Studies

1st June, 2011 - Posted by Sammie Gann - 45 Comments

Join these fourth graders on their adventure through STC ™Animal Studies as they observe the millipede. Students have created three habitats: water, land, and where land and water meet.  In Lesson 9, students compare and contrast the habitats of the millipedes, crabs, and frogs. By focusing on habitat conditions such as climate, moisture, and light, students increase their awareness that the conditions of a habitat affect the lives and behavior of all animals living in it.

Share your millipede discoveries below!

I enjoyed the millipedes very much. I wish we would have had them longer. When we put them in the tray in the lesson, as mentioned in the video, they were a bit scared, but they got used to it. I liked that part of the lesson very much. I also liked when we got to hold them. I thought it was cool that they would walk around on your hand.

Hi this Joi here and I really liked this video. I really like the millipedes to. My favorite part was when they talked about the legs. When we had the millipedes I liked when we got to hold them. But the part I didn’t like was when they used the bathroom on the lid. I really liked the other video’s to. My favorite video was the frog because they had alot of energy.

from yours truly Joi,
