Prekindergarten students have watched their mealworms change from larvae to pupa and now to beetles. It's been a fascinating journey. As mealworms, we studied various aspects of mealworm behavior, such as what they like to eat, if they can follow a maze or crawl backwards. Playing with the darkling beetles was great fun, and it was wonderful to watch students who initially said; "I am afraid of beetles", enjoy having them crawl all over their hands and arms. If you'd like to play with a mealworm too, you'll have a chance on Science Night!
