Life Cycle of a Praying Mantis

Hi Friends.  This is the time of the year where we are slowing down and moving towards summer thinking.  However, it's a perfect opportunity to engage students with all things hands on.

It was this time last year that I purchased praying mantis for the first time. WOW, it was one of the most engaging few weeks.  The kids were on egg watch, looking forward to seeing the nymphs emerge.

Last year I created this wonderful unit but with it being so late in the year, I didn't package it and load it to TpT.  This past week I ordered two new egg cases on Amazon for $8 and look forward to making magic again.  You can click the image below to access the unit!

So here's what's included...

Here's a few additional images from last year...

And a video...

If you love what this file has to offer, I have two additional units made with the same formatting for butterflies and plants. Just click the cover images below to link to each unit.  I will be adding a few new insects in the coming weeks.  Enjoy!
