While students wanted to find a dead animal and watch what happens when flies approach it, we agreed this wouldn't "fly" in our houses! So we turned to the work of others and found an amazing video of flies up close!
While there was a lot of talk about flies and the white things (which we think are maggots), we wanted to zoom in on them more! So even though Mrs. Brinza zoomed in on the movie, it was too pixelated, so we had to find another resource!
We got so much out of this video, as we were all thirsty to see what the flies were doing up close! We summarized our ideas together on this Jamboard:
Students were asked to create a model connecting the flies to the white creatures that appeared. Check out some students' ideas before we'll discuss our ideas and come to consensus as a class!
