Dear Mom and Dad,

I hae been turned into a wasp. Please bear with me being a wasp. I live in a hive now. Also, let Joe have my room and money, since I’m a wasp and I don’t need money.

Love Matt.

p.s. I will fly in the house and do two back flips, so you can recognize me.

These pieces were composed during the May 13th session of the Science Creative Literacy Symposia. During this day, students examined the many wonders of insects (using microscopes, and from resin collections, as well as from the Spencer Entomology Collection). Afterwards, students were then asked to design their own insect, as well as compose a postcard written as if they had been turned into an insect. More pieces from this class can be seen here.
