Let your students design and conduct their own controlled experiments. The lowly little pillbug is a perfect inquiry laboratory organism. They are odorless, easy to obtain, maintain, and handle while displaying an amazing variety of behaviors that can be easily observed by students. After observations of basic pillbug behavior, students are then encouraged to design and conduct an experiment based on their understanding of pillbug behavior. Basic items, such as Petri dishes, filter paper, and detailed teaching instructions are provided. Isopods are ordered separately.
