What Is An Insect

An insect is an animal that has three body parts.

A head . . .

A thorax . . .

And an abdomen . . .

An insect is an organism that has six, and only six, legs.

They donít have eyes like you and I, they have compound eyes with many lenses.

They don’t have noses like you and I, they have antennae to sense the world around them.

They don’t breathe through their mouths like we do, but use their spiracles for respiration.

Finally, insects get around in many ways, but most fly, with one or two pairs of wings!
