Spiders: An Organism for Teaching Biology
- getting spiders out of vials
- encouraging spiders to go where you want them to
- scooping up spiders to transfer them to other areas
- masking tape
- cardboard, or other stiff but flexible material
- Using masking tape, cut an approximately
4 inch long section. Fold over on the sticky side along the length
of the tape a thin row (approximately 1/8" inch wide). Fold again
and again until you have a piece 4" by 1/8". Bend the tip, approximately
1/8", at a right angle. You now have a spider rake!
- Using thin cardboard, cut a piece approximately
4" by 1/8". Fold over approximately 1/8" at the tip at a right angle.
- transferring flies and other insects to spider habitats
- catching small insects outside
- impressing your friends by vacuuming up bugs!
- plastic tubing of two sizes so that one snugly fits
inside the other
- old nylons
- Cut approximately 3" of the larger diameter
- Cut approximately 6" of the smaller
- Cut approximately 1" of the nylon material.
Fit the smaller tubing into the larger tubing with the
nylon materials in between them.
