Grades 2-3 at WP South studied Schoolyard Habitat, and discovered this big-eyed creature! Students didn't know what it was, but soon became experts on cicadas. They. named this one Steve. Excited by their live discovery, they did research to learn more--starting with the fact cicadas are harmless, won't bite or sting, and feel tickly-prickly when they walk on your skin! Students wrote down facts, and drew pictures of cicadas. They found a dry cicada "shell" in a nearby tree, learned it was the insect's exoskeleton, and collected it as a scientific specimen. Then together, the student scientists created an 8-foot-long hallway display of cicada information outside their classroom. Stop by and see it when you're in Bazine!
