This week was science! I love science. One of the sciences I am most interested in is entomology, so I decided to complete task one and learn some more about it!
Entomology is the study of insects, but that term is to specific. Entomology also studies things such as arachnids, slugs, and earthworms. It is a branch of zoology, which is in the category of Life Sciences.
William Kirby is considered the ‘father of entomology’. In 1815, he and William Spence wrote the first popular book on the subject, An Introduction To Entomology. In 1833, Kirby and Spence founded the Entomological Society of London, where he housed over 35 insect specimens.
Entomology is an amazing type of science, one that has helped society improve science, crops, and medicine.
The 3rd task looked fun, so I did it too.
After watching the video, here are a few questions you can answer in the comments. Good luck!
- Which trees are the best growers?
- How tall are giraffes?
- What type of dinosaur was the tallest?
- Why can sea creatures grow bigger?
- How long is a lions mane jellyfish?
I also did the fifth task. Have a go at it, and good luck!
