Third graders at Tackan Elementary School learned about the lifecycle of various aquatic insects during a hands-on engaging activity presented by Western Suffolk BOCES. Using water samples from Willow’s Pond, students got a closer look using their microscopes at many different types of organisms and classify them based on their characteristics. Students also determined whether or not these organisms go through metamorphosis and learned about what they will look like as they mature.
