Mealworms shows kids how to set up a mealworm farm --- with little cost and maintenance --- and what to watch for as these fascinating insects go through metamorphosis to mature as darkling beetles. Often used in classroom experiments, mealworms go through a life cycle in about six weeks. They are compact, easy to care for, full of surprises and, best of all, they can't fly so they won't escape from the habitat kids create! Easy-to-follow experiments examine such topics as the common characteristics of insects, metamorphosis, life cycles, habitats and animals' responses to their environments.
