Description:

In this activity, learners build an instrument for catching and observing flies. Learners act as entomologists, attract flies into a jar using a slice of apple, and then observe the flies' behavior. Learners distinguish between male and female flies and study fly reproduction. The learning time for this activity can vary significantly, depending on how long learners want to observe the flies. Learners release the flies outside at the end of the activity.
