Grades 612. Introduce your students to ethology, the study of animal behavior, with this hands-on, inquiry-based kit. First, students observe the innate behaviors of millipedes using our uniquely designed Carolina™ Large Choice Chambers. Students next conduct their own experiments, exposing the millipedes to various environmental conditions to determine their preferences. They can also determine food preferences by offering a variety of foods. Students collect and analyze their data, and answer questions pertaining to their observations. In addition, discussions on innate vs. learned behavior will provide students with some understanding of natural selection.
The kit is designed for a class of 32 students working in 8 groups of 4. Kit includes perishable materials when shipped.
