Bee, spider, grasshopper, caterpillar. One of these is not an insect. Do you know what characteristics of insects are? We'll explore different habitats including leaf litter, aquatic and grass fields to discover a variety of insects (and non-insects) and their adaptations. What's their connection to plants? With the help of Pierre, my Praying Mantis puppet, and the poetry of Douglas Florian, we'll discover the answers.
