Head, Thorax and Abdomen.

We now know the parts of an insects body...the head, thorax and abdomen. We also know that insects have 6 legs, so guess what?......spiders are not insects! The thorax is where the legs are attached to the insects body and the abdomen is where they breathe from. Insects don't have a nose but they smell, feel and taste through their antennae. Some interesting facts being learnt at school about insects.
We had some very large insects to look at in class...(don't worry they were all plastic) we were able to find each of the insects body parts on these plastic insects.
