This resource pairs nicely with an earlier publication by the author, The Wonders of Terrestrial Isopods. That pub has detailed instructions about how to rear isopods in the classroom, as well as even more possible experiments!

    This is a great series of exercises tied to observing live animals in the classroom — always something that engages student attention. Having students notebook what they observe, and then draw conclusions and discuss what they find is a perfect application of the NGSS STEM Practices.
