On June 5 and 6, third-graders at Tackan Elementary School enjoyed in a hands-on science lesson thanks to Eastern Suffolk BOCES. The students participated in a two-hour program to learn about the lifecycle of insects. They examined local pond water and the various insects that live in it. Using microscopes connected to laptop computers, the students observed the insects and identified them using a key.
