In an example of turning lemons into lemonade, a recent influx of crickets and grasshoppers on our school grounds has turned into a cross-curricular learning opportunity for the students and staff of Academic 3!
After researching information about an appropriate habitat, nutritional needs, and breeding patterns, Academic 3 made a home within their classroom for 17 (and counting!) of these little critters. They have all been named and can be identified by one Academic 3 student by their color variations and personalities!
Staff is enjoying the unexpected benefit of obtaining exercise by chasing them throughout the building when they escape their critter cage. Stay tuned for more Insect Tales!
