Hungry Bugs Videos

Observe how these two bugs eat their prey!


Build a bug!

Research, design and build a giant insect or spider.

Here are some questions, to guide you through this project:

  • How many body segments does your bug have?
  • How many legs does it have?
  • Does it have any wings?
  • What about a tail or antennae?
  • Which parts must move? How will you make them move?
  • What materials will you use?
  • Where does this bug live? What is its name?

Before you start building:

  • research your bug
  • make a sketch and label its parts
  • write a list of materials you will need
  • gather the materials.
