Many different kinds of minibeasts have strange looking eyes. The praying mantis has eyes that are called compound eyes. “If I had compound eyes I would see many small images of the same thing. I use these glasses to see what it is like to see like an insect with compound eyes.”
Aidan brought these glasses from home to share with his class. While looking through these glasses, we can see what an insect, like the praying mantis, might see when looking at the world.
Below is a quick video we made showing what it might look like if we had compound eyes like the praying mantis, bees, butterflies and many other insects.
