Science animals investigate growth of insect

Designed for year one or year two. Science unit about animals and humans and body parts. This is a simple investigation into a class pet(insect) to see if they grow. Quick measurement of the insect once a week over a four week period. Could be linked to understanding of if the insect is alive/what are the criteria for a living thing. Cross-curricular with maths as you'll be measuring using a ruler in cm and you'll be comparing measurements to see how much the insect has grown.
