Bugs in the Classroom!

River Crest students recently participated in “Bugs in the Classroom.”  Volunteers from Trout Unlimited brought in various types of water insects for the students to observe how bugs look, move, their color, and more.  The students took notes on their observations and used their notes to complete additional coursework. The students and staff all had the opportunity to hold each of the creepy and crawly bugs.
