Mealworms Day 1

Our mealworms for our life cycle unit came in today.  I was going to wait and get them set up tomorrow but the kids begged me and I couldn't resist!  They were so excited!  
We got around 200 larvae.  They will live in a tub of oatmeal and will munch on sliced potatoes and apples.  We will be observing them for the next couple of weeks and will get to see them change into beetles.  Wow!  
Here are some pictures from our mealworm adventures today! 
First we got their new home set up and looked at them closely using our new document camera.  

Then we took turns picking them up.  They tickled!

I will keep you all updated on our mealworms transformation!
