I did a MetaCrawler search on Explorer to find out more about sow bugs and found some great sources with pictures and a number of explanations of the physiology of these fascinating crustaceans. The male guards the nest, continually reforming the bubbles.

Animal behavior lab activities

Kinesis is the movement that does not result in orientation with stimulus. We don't order the pill bugs Develop a hypothesis concerning the pillbugs response to the factor. Use the material available in your classroom to design an experiment. The bugs came in moist paper towels, but I figured they needed more 'natural' stuff. List the materials you will use. Notice how the pillbugs in the dry environment moved to their favorable environment, moisture. The DNA fragments, after cutting has occurred, are separated using agarose gel electrophoresis. I have worked for over 20 years with Drosophila and have a whole lab designed around the Dance of the Fruit Fly, but I think that for behavioral studies, the pill bug is much easier to use.

Observe courtship behaviors such as wing vibrations, waving, tapping, licking, circling, and stamping. Observe for ten minutes.

How many segments? Kinesis is the movement that does not result in orientation with stimulus. How do they grow? Error Analysis: Not many things could have drastically changed our results.

Give specific examples. List the materials you will use.
