In third grade science, students learned about how animals are classified. We focused our study on invertebrates and in particular, invertebrates that glow, or become bioluminescent. Bioluminescence is an adaptation that allows animals to escape their predators, find mates, or signal that danger is near. Students researched a bioluminescent creature of their choice, created a model of it, and wrote a paragraph about it. Later on, after we learned about atoms, electrons, and electricity, students completed a circuit using littleBits to light up their creature and show off its areas that glow!
Fun fact: Did you know that 90 % of deep sea creatures are bioluminescent?
