head, thorax and abdomen

working with janice vanCleave’s Teaching the Fun of Science to Young Learners,
the girls built models as a part of their investigation of insect body parts.
remember the 3 + 3 rule:
if it has 3 body parts and 3 pairs of legs,
then it’s an insect.
can you count the legs,
point out the antennae,
and identify two pairs of wings on these colorful bugs?
