I don't know about ya'll but here in Tennessee those crazy cicadas are back! The last time they came out I was 13. To me this is a great teaching experience. (Especially when it's the last two weeks of school.) My kids have not stopped talking about them, or....bringing dead ones in to show me. I'm taking advantage of their fascination by doing a mini unit. Here are the two sheets I'll be using on Monday. I thought I'd share sooner than later just in case ya'll need something to do to grab their attention the last few days. I will try to post more activities and pictures Monday-Tuesday.
Post your email in the comments box if you want me to email you the powerpoint I made. ( I can't send it until Monday morning though.)
