I LOVE this book! Although it’s an older picture book, the message and science in it are timeless. If your students are studying insects or animal adaptations, this would be a great foundational read for a fun STEM challenge!
Featured Picture Book:
The Very Ugly Bug (2004)
By Liz Pichon (@LizPichon)
Illustrated by Liz Pichon
A bug who thinks she is ugly tries to disguise herself using some of the adaptations of her friends, but finds out she’s perfect just the way she is!
Related Themes and Standards:
1. Students could engineer their own insect using various inexpensive/recycled items and then
3. Have drones? Students could create flying insects that have to maneuver through a forest or other habitat to avoid a predator.
