Greenville has its fair share of bugs*.
I had mentioned in a previous post that I sometimes find it challenging to create course assignments that students will see as engaging and inspiring. I presented a few of the solutions that were completed for a project on bolo ties. In that same post was an enameling assignment for “making a bug.”
Since then I have had a few requests to see some of the solutions for that project.
So for those of you interested...here are a few more bugs from Greenville.
*The most common, seemingly, is the cockroach also known around these parts as the Palmetto or water bug. Not native to North America they were believed to be introduced from Africa off slave ships in the 1600s. Fossil evidence suggests they've been around for about 300 million years. Get used to 'em.
