15: A grasshopper's ear is right beside its wing. Its ear is called tympanum and sticks up just a little bit beside its wing. A grasshopper's claw is in the front of its hopping leg. The claw hooks on to stuff like grass, weeds, and plants. Grasshoppers’ have a fore wing and a hind wing. They use their wings to fly short distances to get away from predators. A grasshopper has legs that help it jump really high. The top part of the leg is thick and thick. The lower part is long, skinny, and red. A grasshopper's eyes can see in all directions. Its eyes are on both sides of its face and are big and black. A grasshopper's antennas are right above its eyes. It uses the antennae to sense things that are coming. | I am also an insect. | 13

You can see the veins in the wings if you look really close. They let them fly fast so they can get away from things. They need bones in their wings or they cannot fly. The legs collect pollen everytime they land on flowers they leave pollen. If there were no bees some flowers would be extinct. | 19

28: How we made this book Four Arcola Elementary School students, named Mckenzie, Renea, Kayden, and Rhand got together on Skype with their college teacher, Mrs. Perlich twice a week to create this book. We took pictures of insects and body parts and put them in the book. We came up with clues for the reader to crack. It took some time to write our stuff down for all of our insects, but it was still worth it. Then we drew a diagram to put at the end of each insects clues. We had to talk it over and agree on some stuff. We made this book because we wanted to help first grades learn insects. We hope that the readers love this book and learn a lot about insects
