Playing with Pill Bugs

As we ended the year, my students became fascinated with pill bugs!  We decided to learn about these unusual creatures and then we created habitats for a few of them using 2-liter bottles.  Did you know that pill bugs are not actually bugs?  They are arthropods!

This is a really easy lab and you can find most of the materials you need for this lab outside or in the recycling bin!  Once our pill bug habitat were constructed, the students kept a pill bug journal and recorded their observations of the pill bugs in their habitat for about 2 weeks.

I have created a Playing with Pill Bugs lab packet that you can download for FREE!  The fall or the spring are great times to get busy playing with pill bugs!
