Create your own bug!

TRY IT

Invent your own personal bug. Remember that all insects have the following parts:

Head - contains eyes, mouth, and two feelers called antennae

Thorax - the middle section

Abdomen - the end section. This is where the insect digests its food. Sometimes it has a pincher or a stinger.

Legs - all insects have three pairs of legs (six legs in all)

Draw your bug on a piece of paper. Give your bug a name and then answer these questions:

1. How does your insect travel? (Does it fly, crawl, swim, or hop?)

2. What does it eat?

3. How does it protect itself? (Can it change colors or does it bite and sting?)

4. What does it like to do during the day or night time?
