This summer the students are taking home their mealworms. Some students did not want to take home mealworms, so we had a few extra. My children do not know this...... I am taking some home too!!!
Allison did not want to come into our classroom while we were caring for our critters, because she thinks they are gross. What could you say to Allison that would convince her to change her mind about the mealworms? Do you have any advise for her that would make her feel better about caring for the mealworms
Once one adult emerges out of the pupa stage, they will be hungry and thirsty. You may put a corn flake bedding and a piece of potato or apple in the beetles habitat.
Observe the Darkling Beetle for a few days. Don't forget to blog about your observations.
After 2-3 days, you may let the bettles go.
I hope you enjoyed the project.
When the mealworms move to the larva stage, they are no longer eating and drinking. You will not need to provide it bedding or moisture. You should still make observations. You can continue writing and diagraming in you journal, if you choose.
Many exciting changes are happening to the mealworm as it is in the pupa stage. Handle the pupa with care just as you did when handling the mealworms.
Keep checking the blog to find out how your classmates are doing with their mealworms.
