Are you ready to hear more about the bugs we are studying in science? Well, last time we wrote about meeting the mealworms, but we didn't know much about them. Now we've learned that mealworms turn into beetles! We did a Zoom-In with a life cycle diagram. First, we saw the egg, and we had to guess what it was. Next, we saw a larva, which was a mealworm. We didn't know it was called a larva yet. Next, we saw a bigger mealworm, which still was a larva. Next we saw a pupa. Some of our classmates thought it was a dragonfly, because it looked like there were wings on it. We were on the last stage. A lot of people thought it would turn into just a bigger mealworm, but, surprise! It turned into a crawly beetle. Then we got to look at the real ones again. And now we know all about their life cycle.
