1. Make your own mosquito! Ok, not for real, these will be much cuter, but you can make it so that it really buzzes!
2. Learn about the life cycle of a mosquito. (Ask a parent's permission before going online.)
3. How fast can you flap your arms? Is is 500 times a minute? How about 20? Set a timer and see how fast you are!
