Have you ever studied the praying mantis? On Tuesday I was walking with my student when we found a praying mantis using its street smarts using the crosswalk. :)
This led us to learning so much this week. I changed all our other afternoon plans and replaced them with praying mantis items. I found a couple videos online to show, word search, reading comprehension, and a writing assignment.
I was also able to borrow a pet praying mantis for two days and during that time it laid its egg sack. It was very exciting! :) I had fun transporting it to and from school so my children could learn a little too.
